Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A fun, rhyming and interactive ("Which would you choose?") story about a hamster and his friends, including the junkyard dog, building a hot rod for a race. The colors are rich and bright, and the rhymes are fun to read aloud.Recommended.
This is one of my son's favorite books! The illustrations are darling and the message (bigger isn't necessarily better) is good. It's the perfect book for any little boy who loves cars.
Second graders loved this book. The style encourages engagement, and the reading level is easy.
Don't let the title or cover art fool you. Boys and girls enjoy this book. We bought this book to donate to my daughter's class. The teacher has told me it is a great book to get the children to calm down and laugh together.
