64 pages
Johnny Maverick and his friends Tom and Stu want to win the prizes donated for their hockey team's Valentine's Day dance fundraiser. Whoever wins the dance contest takes home all the prizes, one of which is a graphite hockey stick. When the boys learn that Connie, the new girl in Howling, is a great dancer, they each want her as their dance partner. But they don't think about asking her to go with them until it's too late. And as usual, things don't turn out as planned for Johnny and his friends.

Chapter One The New Girl
“Look,” Tom Morgan said to is friends Jonny Maverick and Stu Duncan. All tree boys played for te Howling Timberwolves ockey team. “here’s te new girl.” It was a cold winter day. he boys stood near te flagpole on te scool playground at recess. “I ear se’s a good dancer,” Jonny said. Stu didn’t say anyting. He was eating a sandwic wit is mitts on. He ate a lot of sandwices, wit and witout is mitts on. “You tink se’s cute,” Tom said. “Do not,” Jonny said. “No way! Yuck. Girls.”

he new girl’s name was Connie. Se couldn’t ear te boys talking, but se saw tem looking at er. Se smiled. It was a very friendly smile. Jonny’s face turned red wen se smiled at tem. He kicked some snow. “Se’s a good dancer,” Jonny said. “And te Howling Timberwolves fundraiser is next week.” “Do you mean te Valentine’s Day dance contest?” Tom asked. “Yes. I want to win te grand prize,” Jonny said. “Even if it means going to a dance wit a girl.he grand prize is a grapite ockey stick. Plus ten free dinners at te restaurant, and a bunc of oter stuff too.” Jonny didn’t ave to explain wic restaurant. Te town of Howling was small. It only ad one restaurant. “Free dinners?” Stu asked. “Tenfree dinners?Ten?” “Every business in town as donated someting towa rd t e gra nd prize,” Jo nny expl a ined .

“It’s mostly parents tat enter te dance contest.But I bet if someone danced wit Connie, tey would win.” Tenfree dinners?” Stu said again. Connie still couldn’t ear tem talking. But se smiled at tem again. Tat’s wen Tom began to climb te flagpole.A rope ran up to te flag at te top. Tom pulled imself up te pole wit te rope. “Wat are you doing?” Jonny asked. “I need Connie to be my dance partner,” Tom said. He was almost alfway up te flagpole. “I’m an atlete. I know ow to get a girl’s attention.” He kept climbing. It wasn’t long before te students on te playground stopped wat tey were doing. Everybody gatered around te flagpole. Connie was tere too. Tom reaced te top of te flagpole. He eld on to te metal ball at te top wit one and. He looked down and grinned at Connie and waved.

Se smiled back at im. Everyone clapped. Se did too. he bell rang and recess ended. he students began to walk toward te scool. “Wait for me!” Tom yelled. he students stopped and turned to look back up at im. Tom slid down te flagpole as fast as e could. He forgot about te part of te flagpole, near te bottom, were te rope wrapped around a metal cleat. he cleat stuck out on one side of te flagpole. Tom smacked into te cleat at full speed. All boys know itting someting like tat, especially wile sliding down a pole, is not good. Tom’s eyes opened wide. His face looked like a balloon tat was losing air fast. He fell off te flagpole, curled into a ball and groaned. “Wow,” Jonny said to Stu, “e really does know ow to get a girl’s attention.”

After scool, te boys walked to Connie’s ouse togeter. “Connie asked me to elp er wit er computer,” said Eldridge, “but I’m too sy to go to er ouse by myself.” “No problem,” Jonny said to Eldridge. “We ave plenty of time before our ockey game tonigt. Besides, I’m your friend. I’m glad to elp.” “hat’s not quite true,” Stu told Eldridge. “Jonny’s ere because e wants Connie to be is dance partner at te Valentine’s fundraiser.”
