KIRKUS REVIEW

The authors have written some solidly dependable auto racing stories for teenagers (Pancake Special, Backyard Winner) and this one, for a younger audience, on racing karts handles pretty well too. Buster Browne tells how his shop project with Jimmy Sherman building their own kart accelerated into the formation of a karting club and some racing matches. His casual narrative is consistently pleasant and his explanations of some of the technicalities of constructing and operating a kart keep the pace. Buster's continuing rivalry with Rand Nolan, which gradually shifts from fist fights to the track, is reasonably incorporated into the book. Pre-driver's license auto buffs will roll right through this, even the reluctant readers.
