This is the comical adventure story of three boys who live in an English seaside town. In order to raise money to purchase a giant chocolate egg, the boys come up with several harebrained ideas involving a shark and a sea urchin. Some of the obstacles they come up against include a school bully, underwear, and exploding fish. Almost every page will have the reader giggling as the boys get more and more over their heads.
