Your first car is always the best. And your first road trip is the coolest – even if there are a few obstacles in your way.
The hero of this book has been longing for a car for ages. Now his wish has come true atlong last. It’s a pedal car from his grandfather, and it needs a bit of fixing up. But Grandpa knows a thing or two about cars. Together, they hammer and sand, applying primer and screws. Finally, of course, the car needs a lovely coat of varnish – and then the little red roadster is ready. A few quick driving lessons, and off he goes: on his first big trip with his little brother on the back seat.
And what if they should encounter wasps? Or girls? Or a yawning chasm? Or a creepy dark tunnel? None of it matters at all. Driving a car is the best thing in the whole wide world!
For all car lovers – a brilliant new story from this talented picturebook artist
