Mini Racer by Kristy Dempsey


Mini Racer by Kristy Dempsey

Start your engines! Time to race Round the corners, take your place. This wonderful rhythmic text will tickle the funny bones of little readers all around the racetrack. The bright Richard-Scarry-esque art adds a multilayered story as twelve animals zoom round an obstacle course in their mini vehicles. Follow each animal's setbacks and triumphs on the course as Giraffe gets stuck outside a tunnel and Seal enjoys a bath during the pit stop.


Praise for Mini Racer: 'The rhyming text is perfect for reading out loud and the humorous art will appeal to all mini readers
