Miles to the Finish


Miles over to the preschool Grand Prix, where a little girl is about to give the boys a run for their money. It’s race day at the Red Apple School, and Miles and Otto can’t wait. But what’s that fancy Speedster doing here? It belongs to a girl named Indie, and the boys had better get in shape if they want to win the trophy! Soon everyone is off — “whish! whoosh! — “and Miles takes an early lead. But then Indie is at his side, only to go off the track. Will Miles take his chance for an easy win?

Rating: 5 *****

Harper does a wonderful job telling the story with illustrations and then incorporating the text later on to tell a completely other story than the one with words alone. A great story for perceptive children.
