“Wacky racers zoom through an unconventional course. Who will win? Clues along the way should help children figure out the surprise twist, and readers will love flipping back and forth to see the play between Maxwell’s imagination and real life. Fliess’ crunchy, rhyming text will have readers barreling along. Energetic automotive fun.” Read the full review.
"Rhyming text makes generous use of onomatopoeia to tell the tale of how the littlest car wins the race. Brightly colored cartoon illustrations depict close-ups of seemingly fantastical landscapes that are also oddly familiar...A rollicking read-aloud and a fun choice for one-on-one sharing so youngsters can flip back through the pages and see how the boy’s flights of fancy compare to his reality."

Who will take the Winner’s Cup?
“Rev your engines…GO GO GO!”
All the cars are lining up for the race, but one car is smaller than the rest. As it squeezes in between all of them, the cars rev their engines . . . and they’re off! Down mountains and by waterfalls, through tunnels and past landslides, the cars race through places that somehow look oddly familiar. . . .
