Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
The characters from Pixar's animated film Cars divide into teams of two to race from Radiator Springs to Chi-Car-Go. A series of adventures and misadventures along the way evoke the race made famous by the tale of the tortoise and the hare complete with side excursions and a surprise ending. The illustrations faithfully reproduce the characters from the animated film. The text balloons are consistent in appearance and well-spaced. Though the font is small, occasional use of directional arrows and linked speech balloons help the reader navigate through most panels. The plot consists of a series of adventures that befall the different car teams, on and off the highway, as they race to finish line. The plot sets up and resolves a series of observations on right and wrong; a bully gets his come-uppance and the winners are unexpected. At the end of the book, a series of short pieces, introduced by Disney character Scrooge, advertises additional "BOOM Kids" comic novels featuring The Incredibles, Buzz Lightyear, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Lightening McQueen followed by five pages advertising other "BOOM Kids" graphic novels. Alan Porter and Allen Gladfelter have written and illustrated a fun companion piece to the Pixar original. Reviewer: Hazel Buys
