WIN!! A wonderful addition to your kid's bookcase with Tidy Books' book review and competition. We are super excited to be teaming up with author and illustrator Dwight Knowlton. You can win a copy of his book, The Little Red Racing Car, a special edition T-shirt and stickers in this fabulous prize package.
When you see a beautiful vintage car out for a spin, do you ever wonder what it takes to keep its wheels turning? When a little boy discovers an abandoned racing car, he and his dad embark on a labour of love to restore it, and find that the car once had a very special owner!
The appeal of The Little Red Racing Car is in the simplicity of the story, and the crisp, graphical illustrations that span each double page. Author Dwight Knowlton is clearly a car enthusiast with an eye for the classics. After clearing off the cobwebs, the boy and his dad are delighted to find a vintage Maserati, and are doubly excited to discover that F1 legend Stirling Moss had raced in it!
With careful attention, Knowlton details the parts (valves, pistons, carburetors) that father and son clean, replace or mend. The boy and his dad clearly enjoy spending time together, as they work to bring the Maserati roaring and growling back to life.
The Little Red Racing Car is paced nicely to read aloud, and is perfect for dads (and moms) to share with their girls and boys - petrolheads or not. Everyone can identify with having a dream that you enjoy pursuing. And this kid's book is beautifully presented, and its sure to become a vintage classic in your family.
The Little Red Racing Car is published by Carpe Viam. Thanks to Dwight Knowlton who kindly provided the review copies.
