Jasper Dash and the Flame Pits of Delaware by M.T. Anderson
Jasper and his friends Lily and Katie are back in an action-packed, extremely silly adventure. The three friends live in the small town of Pelt where the athletic teams do so poorly that the school has formed a staring team to have some chance at victory. Jasper is the champion of the Stare-Eyes team and everyone is counting on him to help them beat the Delaware team. But when the Delaware team shows up everyone can tell there is something not right about them and in the middle of his contest Jasper hears a plea for help in his mind that causes him to blink. Jasper recognizes the cry for help as being from his friend Drdnan who is lost in the wilds of Delaware - a state that has been cut off from human contact for years. Jasper, Lily and Katie set off into the foreign state to try to locate and save Drdnan from tigers, gangsters and Doverians.
