Johnny Maverick has come up with an idea to win a fundraising contest for the Howling Timberwolves hockey team. It seems fun, until a girl visits Howling—and starts to win challenges against Johnny. The entire town finds it funny; even worse, his friends Tom and Stu like what's happening.

Also available in French.
"A great friendship story in which Johnny learned a good life lesson and how to be a good sport."

– Puget Sound Council
"Combin[es] the physical humour of the previous books with a concise fully developed plot and simple language...Timberwolf Challenge is a not-to-be-missed title for those who have chuckled with other books in the "Timberwolves" series...[and is] particularly effective for the struggling reader."
