From Olympic gold medal winner Mo Farah and bestselling author of Oi Frog!, Kes Gray, comes a fun fiction series which will get kids reading, and running too! After returning home from a long cross-country run, it's time for Mo and his friends to decide where to go on their next running adventure. Sandwiches at the ready, the friends head somewhere beautiful, with glistening snow and sparkling lakes ... The Rocky Mountains! But crossing states is tiring work, and with lots of new creatures (and monsters!) to meet along the way, will Mo and friends ever get time for a sandwich break? Here comes Bigfoot ... RUN! Follow Mo on his madcap adventures as his running skills go from strength to strength. The perfect book to share and read aloud. The nation watched with bated breath as Mo Farah seized Olympic gold in the 10,000m and 5000m - he's been a national treasure ever since. In this adventurous series father of three, Mo Farah, combines two lifelong passions - literacy and exercise.

Mo and his friends Lily, Vern, Lyra and Banjo love running. One day they decide to run to the Rocky Mountains. They run from wasps, grizzly bears, wolves, fish eagles, mountain lions, wolverines and a family of big foot. I like the book because it is exciting. I recommend this book for years 2 to 4.

Superintendent Switch Squirrel 10.08.2020


Five friends who decide to go for a run to Rocky Mountain. They come across lots of things that chase them and so they have to keep running and running with no chance to rest. Finally they get home and just in time for tea. My favourite character is Mo as he is confident and helps his friends. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes going on adventures.

Baroness Mildred Shortbread 09.08.2020


I really liked this book. Mo did lots of running and I liked telling my mum about the different places he ran to. The monsters kept chasing him. I want to read other ones.

Master Zeus Palm-tree 06.08.2020
