The Screech Owls are flying around the world to Sydney, Australia, site of the 2000 Olympics, for an exhibition tournament to promote ice hockey in the sports-mad land down under.
The trip, however, involves much more than hockey. The teams coming to Sydney will take part in “The Peewee Olympics” – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the youngsters to compete in real Olympic sports facilities.
What will it be for Nish? The pole vault? Synchronized swimming? Beach volleyball?
The team is also invited to tour Sydney’s magnificent zoo and the world-renowned Sydney Aquarium, where Sarah’s interest in bizarre marine biology leads to a field trip in search of an endangered sea horse. A field trip that brings the Screech Owls face-to-face with Death Down Under.
