From the Author
When my son was born, I went looking for the perfect automotive children's book to share my love of cars with him. I couldn't find what I was looking for, so I decided to create it.
The Little Red Racing Car is a father and son story about a very special car, a real car, the Maserati® 300S. It was a winning racing car in the 50's and a favorite of a legendary driver by the name of Sir Stirling Moss.

This simple story references a very real Maserati type and a well known racing driver of the time, though the story is fictionalized. From the introduction to the car, its retirement, storage for years in a barn, to be discovered by a little boy exploring the newly purchased property by a young family. The bonding of father and son working on the restoration of this historic car is a moving tribute to a loving relationship like the one I had.
In my early 70s, I tear up every time I re-read this little story, reliving the memories of the wonderful times with my Dad.
What father hasn't envisioned a father-son joint hobby, where the car is restored, everything works and there's no disagreements, ever?
The illustrations are fun, there's real racing history subtly taught, and it's a car guy's dream. If only life was really like this....
even more exciting vehicles, my enthusiasm waned. Race cars like this still
spark my imagination in ways that later ones do not. Same with the later
race drivers. Finally, I shared my enthusiasm with my father.
