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. It features well-loved authors, classic characters and favourite topics, so that children will find something to excite and engage them in every title they pick up. It's the first step towards a lasting love of reading.
