Synopsis

Speedy and Splash Have a Race by

Speedy and Splash, like all raindrops, love to race, but Splash has never won a race and how he would love to win - just once! But it seems that this time he's not going to be lucky either. He has all kinds of problems to overcome - a leaf blocking his path, an argument between a snail and a caterpillar, and a mysterious monster. Then, finally, when his luck seems to be on the turn, something totally unexpected happens that puts all thoughts of winning right out of his head and Speedy's as well. In the end they realise that if they work together and achieve together, then they feel good together - and no one is a loser ever again!

About the Author

Helena Harper was born in Surrey, England, daughter of a German mother and English father, who met in Hamburg at the end of World War II. After graduating in German and International Relations, Helena spent two years in banking before deciding to train as a teacher. She has always loved to write fantasy stories for young children, and in the past few years has also discovered the joys of writing poetry for adults. Speedy and Splash Have a Race is Helena's second children's book, her first being Pep, Polish and Paint (which tells the story of Sammy, the sun, and how he regains his shine). She has also written two collections of stories in verse, drawn from her professional experiences (It's a Teacher's Life...!) and family situation (Family & More - Enemies or Friends?).
