I read this last year. It reminds me of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I got it as a low vocab high interest reading book for my intervention group this year.
They really like this book. The story is cute, and funny. It is fairly true to lexile, and both genders seem to be interested in the book. I especially liked the revenge aspect of this book. I think we all wish we could get back at someone who has made us miserable. It allows the reader to feel like they have done just that, without resorting to inappropriate behavior. Very nice, and somewhat goofy. No complaints of "This book is boring". Mostly-can I read ahead-unheard of in my 20th percentile group!!! Nice.
The quality of this used paperback was as expected-a little worn, but no torn pages, and no writing. Overall, good condition.

Absolutely delightful. My granddaughter read me a bit of this story that got me hooked, so I purchased it. It's a page-turner for any generation that enjoys fiction, fun, suspense, and fantasy. This is Jody Feldman's first novel, and we must hope it isn't the last! She shows an extraordinary skill describing vivid scenes from her imagination such that multiple readers enjoy the same amazing experience. Her finesse with characters, who develop imperceptibly but undeniably, and who interact exactly as they ought to but not quite as you expect them to; her mastery of plot, which seems elementary but surprises you nonetheless; and her fluency with dialog and emotion make this a book to remember. My granddaughter (and her friends), her mother, and I all hope this will become a movie. It would make a good one, as it is eventful, highly visual, and populated with all sorts of wonderful adults and children.

I have been a longtime fan of children's literature and continue to read juvenile fiction on a regular basis. I have no doubt that this is on its way to becoming a contemporary hit and a long-term favorite.

Comparison's can be made with Roald Dahl but the difference is that The Gollywhopper Games provides an opportunity for its protagonist, Gil, to actively prove his value and--more importantly--his self-worth. Charlie (of the famous chocolate factory) wins more by passivity than by anything he actually does; in essence, he is the least repellant of that motley crew. Here, Feldman shows a range of real young people and adults who are wonderful shades of gray. No one is perfect but no one is wholly bad. With an incredible amount of detail in both atmosphere and character, this is a tale of learning, forgiveness, teamwork, and self-fulfillment.

Feldman has created a fantastic world grounded in reality and populated it with real people and tantalizing puzzles. This is a must-read for anyone who enjoys a great book.

As a mother who screens everything her 11-year-old daughter reads, I had been really upset at the concluding books of two of the most exciting series, namely "Harry Potter" and "The Hunger Games." Both of those series started off as incredibly original and well-written children's books, great for tweens - but as the series went on, they just lost steam and started to read like disdainful reactions towards their fan base. Books like those by Wendy Mass and Jody Feldman, then, are most refreshing by comparison, in that they are neither serialised nor do they read as though they are written by authors tired of the fame and obligations that come with success. I totally enjoyed "The Gollywhopper Games", which brought to my mind "The Hunger Games - Book 1", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory", "The Mysterious Benedict Society" series (!) and Andrew Clements' new series "Benjamin Pratt & the Keepers of the School" (previously reviewed). While I still appreciate a good series in reading, I truly hope that stand-alone books will increase in popularity, especially when they are as clever and well-thought-out as this book. Said daughter is similarly taken with "The Gollywhopper Games":

"The book, 'The Gollywhopper Games' by Jody Feldman is a fantastic book about one boy against 4,499 other kids, all of whom are either rich, geniuses or incredibly lucky in the Golly-Whopper Games.

"Gil Goodson's future happiness depends on winning the Golly Toy & Game Company's ultimate competition. And if Gil wins, his Dad will move them out of town where Gil's dad was framed and almost went to prison for 'stealing 5 million dollars.' However, Gil overcomes the numerous obstacles placed in front of him and, in the end, of course, gets his deepest and most wanted wish come true.

"My favorite part was when Gil's whole neighborhood came to his house and congratulated him even when they didn't know whether he had lost or won the Games because, to me, that is how a real neighborhood should act.

"I would give the book five big Gollywhopper stars: one for Gil, one for his competition, two for the cover that reminded me of Lisa Yee's 'Millicent Min, Girls Genius' covers (Lisa Yee is another one of my favorite authors), and the biggest brightest star for the problems and solutions that Feldman gave her characters that had even my mom stumped at times."

This book was one of the best books I have ever read. I would recommend this book to grades 5 th and 6th. The characters in this book showed courage and most importantly perseverance. Overall I think you would love this book.
