Machine-mad Jack is the best mechanic for miles around…Happily, he settles down to mend a turbo-charged racing car. When all is fixed, Jack sets off on a wonderful space adventure at the wheel of his super machine. Machine-mad readers can enjoy their own adventure in the replica model of Jack’s rocket racing car which can be unpinned from the back of the book. A satisfying story with a lasting legacy.
