Review quote

'a madcap story about a race ... the illustrations creating a sense of nervous anticipation and fury to reach a goal, never mind how. It is utterly brilliant!' * Janette Perkins, School Library Association * 'A face-paced joy' * Musselburgh News * 'Brilliant illustrations and non-stop action make this a race you won't want to miss.' * Read it Daddy! book blog * 'Children who love vehicles of all sorts (and that's most of them) will revel in the detailed, lively illustrations' * Parents in Touch * 'Packed full of alliteration and other tongue-teasing phrases to test the reader-aloud, this story unfolds at breakneck speed.' * Red Reading Hub blog * 'With its clever, addictive rhymes and vibrant illustrations, this is a book to read aloud . . . and return to time and time again!' * Lancashire Evening Post *show more
