How to Win a Monster Race

Tonight’s bedtime story was a new read for us, How to win a Monster Race.

Albie has had a very busy morning building a super fast race track for his cars when his mum takes him out to run an errand at the car wash.

When the get there, the car wash starts before Albie’s mum gets back in the car.

And then Albie finds himself in the middle of a monster car race.

This is a book about the power of imagination. Albie’s homemade track comes to life and he is racing the other monsters, including Maxamillian who tries to cheat his way to victory.

The messages seem clear- cheats don’t prosper and working together is what makes you a winner.

There’s lots to talk about with this book. The toy track v what happens to the monsters, who is going to win and why, how they are going to get out of the sticky situations they literally get stuck in. The illustrations are bright and colourful and busy so there is lots of nice details to notice.

The Little Monster has already asked if we can go to the car wash – and to be fair my car is filthy so we may well do that!
