The unique skills each creature would bring to these events are described in a fun yet factual way. Readers are invited to predict who would win the gold, silver and bronze medal in each event.

Richard Turner is an author and Performing Arts teacher in Adelaide South Australia, who supports children’s creative voices through drama and dance. He has directed and choreographed musicals, working with students who can sing and dance way better than he can. Like most people, Richard has to be told to eat his peas, but never has to be told to eat his jellybeans or ice cream. He has been on a skateboard, a roller coaster, an elephant and a camel. He has also been on a spaceship to the moon, but only in his dreams!
