Monty Wins the Cup by Jake Sparks

A gloriously inventive story of rip-roaring racing cars and chocolate milkshake by Jake Sparks, perfect for children learning to read. When Danny Crankshaft's inventor parents build him a racing car for his seventh birthday, he doesn't realise how much it will change his life. Because Monty is more than your average car. Not only does he run on chocolate milkshake instead of petrol, he can actually talk by revving his engine. But when Danny and Monty enter the Tooting Wallop Cup, they find themselves up against Hugo de Horrible - the nastiest man in town. Can Monty win the cup, or will Hugo's cheating ways let him lift the prize? The Reading Ladder series helps children to enjoy learning to read.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
