Julia Eccleshare's comment:
A World Book Day 'Recommended Read' for 2011
This is a delightful new take on the classic fable of the hare and the tortoise. Full of shining cars and screeching tyres, it's a picture book for drivers of all ages, young and old. So many different cars and so many very unusual drivers of them will delight all those to love the thought of speed! Who’s driving the limousine? Who’s driving the racing car? Each answer is a delightful surprise and the repetitive structure of the text makes this a book to enjoy again and again.
A word from the publisher Julia Marshall:
“I chose this book because of its exuberance, the strong graphics, and the fun of matching the right driver to the right vehicle. It’s a great book for reading aloud to young children.”Who is Julia Eccleshare ?

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
