May 2015 Book of the Month The creators of bestsellers How to Grow a Dinosaur and How to Catch a Dragon have produced another winner. A trip through the car wash magically transports Albie onto the starting line of a monster car race (that’s a race in which the cars are driven by monsters)! Meanie Maxamillion is cheating in his monster truck so Albie kindly picks up a couple of stranded drivers and his teamwork leads to an outright win. Children will be caught up completely in the story, and there are lots of chances to join in with sound effects and responses. Story, pace and tone are spot on for the audience, and the bright, friendly illustrations make this virtually irresistible. ~ Andrea Reece
