'Captain Jimmy Cook has made a Top Secret Important Discovery. Even more important than any discovery that the other Captain Cook from the olden days ever made. A real dinosaur footprint! And everyone knows that underneath a real dinosaur footprint will be a real dinosaur bone...Jimmy has to keep the amazing discovery a big secret because he found it behind a toilet block (that's totally out-of-bounds). That's not going to stop Jimmy and his crew! Once he digs up the dinosaur bone, he's going to be the most famous Captain James Cook in history and not even Ms Fennel will be mad with him...But even the greatest explorers have problems. Jimmy's are these: 1) Everyone in the school now wants to help in The Dig, so it's just a matter of time before Ms Fennel puts a stop to the greatest discovery of all time and 2) a large smelly cat is sitting in his hole...But luck is on his side. Jimmy's found a map of the school with a large X on it. And everyone knows what that means – Treasure! Treasure! Treasure!..Captain Jimmy Cook is about to make the discovery of a lifetime ...'

'Jimmy Cook is finding History Week a bit boring until Ms Fennel starts banging on about Captain Cook. Then - bingo! Turns out he and Captain Cook have a lot in common. Here are three of the big ones: they are both named James Cook; they are both great explorers; and they both look great in a tricorn hat. Funny fiction for those who love Tom Gates and Timmy Failure.

'Jimmy Cook has discovered that he has quite a lot in common with the explorer Captain James Cook. No doubt they were related. So when he finds out that Captain Cook met with a sticky end in Hawaii, he's determined to travel to the island finish what he started. His parents aren't so interested but luckily Jimmy's favourite brand of cereal is running a competition. First prize: an Hawaiian Holiday.

'Jimmy is going to have to eat a lot of full-fibre Wheetblocks to enter, but big dreams come with a big price. And no price is too big when it comes to Captain James Cook especially if it means beating the world's most annoying person, Alice Toolie.' (Publication summary)
