The stuffed Mama Lion and her little Tigey are getting excited for Race Day to come. The Knitted Monkeys, the Pandlinis and all the other stuffed animals have their engines primed and are heading to the starting line for the Owl-ficials to blow their whistles. Off they go.
Is this another story about ambition and wining the race? Not with Jon j Muth at the wheel. This Fast-Car race is a journey filled with life lessons waiting around every curve and over every hilltop. Once the cars cross the finish line, what will really matter? Is the trophy all there is to life...being number one, finishing first, being the fastest, beating everyone else?
Or can you find something else as you race along that might last for years and make a great difference in the life you live, long after the trophy on the shelf has begun to tarnish.
