Wheelnuts! Craziest Race on Earth Desert Dust Up by Knife and Packer
Published by Scholastic Australia
It’s a tad crazy! But that’s in the title, craziest race, so no surprise there! The illustrations are bright and humorous, the characters weird and whacky. And the race lives up to its title. You cant believe there is actually a way to navigate through the gulch of mirages, or the jump over the ravine… and the babies do really well with their burps and, well, I don’t want to know what’s in their drool… but I’m not going to tell you how they got past the robot scorpions either.
This book was a little daunting to my 8 year old reluctant reader to read himself, so we did it as a team. He giggled and thought it was funny. To me it was was a litttttle hard to get into, but I’m not the target audience.
A more confident reader aged 6-9 or so I believe would enjoy this if they like whackyness, crazy races, and, the best yet, no rules!
