Travis & Freddy’s Adventure in Vegas
Travis is a maniac with a million-dollar smile. Freddy is a brainiac with a million-dollar brain. In Travis & Freddy’s Adventures in Vegas (Dutton Children’s Books; Hardcover; On Sale April 2006; 176 pgs; $15.99; Ages 10 and up), these two buddies—one the coolest kid and the other the biggest nerd at Walla Walla Junior High—set out to save Travis’s dad from disaster by winning big in Las Vegas, armed only with Travis’s charm and Freddy’s latest invention: a pair of glasses wirelessly connected to a laptop programmed with his homemade guaranteed-to-win-at-blackjack software..
Safely ensconced in the Elvis Suite in their Las Vegas hotel, room service flowing freely, everything looks good until they meet Johnny Large, the meanest— and shortest—gangster in Vegas. Once Johnny Large is on the scene, it’s going to take a lot of luck (and some help from Sam, their sassy new lady cabdriver friend) to get out of Vegas alive!
