Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Frankie's in a pickle, literally. He wants to move up to Shrew Scout from Possum Scout, and have a car for the upcoming Pine Run 300 that is flashier than his friend Carters. Winning the Pine Run 300 will give him enough points to move up to Shrew Scout. Frankie decides to design and build the car needed for the race by himself-not the brightest idea he has ever had. Can he build the car that wins the race? Will he move up to Shrew Scout? Will he learn to take directions and ask for help?
With illustrations galore, humor, and Frankie's cute escapist cartoon fantasies, this book was fun for me and my kids to read. I quote them below:
"Imaginative, incredible" Erik, age 8
"It was good" Kyle, age 7 (I know I need to work with him on using descriptive words when discussing things he has read)
I definately want to get my kids the first book in the series after reading this one. It is perfect for reluctant readers, with just enough cartoons to keep a nonreader interested. It was reminiscent of the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series of books which are also good for children who do not like to read much.
