*VILLAGE VOICE BEST CHILDREN'S BOOKS OF THE YEAR
"Author John stadler's full-color cartoons perfectly complement the off-beat story and are full of the bizarre touches one finds in the work of Tomi Ungerer. Strange but fun."
*School Library Journal*
"Both the art and text are full of sass as they tell the story of Rodney, the winningest race-car driver of all time, and Lucinda, a rookie who nonetheless beats him at his own game...The art, watercolor drawings in a refined cartoon style, has a full quotient of visual jokes and wry detail."
"Stadler won acclaim with "Animal Cafe", and most of the time his new picture book boasts the same crazy humor..."
"This book is pure delight and enjoyment certain to please young readers."
