Start your engines: The race is on! And Mama Lion and Tigey are off with their cool goggles and snazzy sports car! Racing teams gather from far and wide for this madcap race. But who will take home the big trophy? Will it be the playful Flying Pandinis? The mischievous Knitted Monkey crew? Or will Mama Lion and Tigey speed past the finish line in first place?
While everyone hopes to win, it's the journey itself filled with joy, beauty, fun, and friendships that is the best prize of all. With cars inspired by the early days of Italian motor racing, and characters based on his children's beloved toy animals, Jon J. Muth has created a uniquely spellbinding book that readers will return to again and again.
"The loving portraits of vintage cars are a pleasure in themselves, and the race is simultaneously tense and surprisingly leisurely.... Mama Lion isn’t focused on domination: 'We could not win!' she suggests to Tigey at the race’s climax, reciprocating kindness with kindness. For her, the important thing is not the goal but the journey, and gratitude for all living things. 'The world is beautiful,' she murmurs to herself, midrace." Publishers Weekly
