Description

"Wacky Races meets Candy Crush ... Fizzes with fast-paced fun!" —Mo O'Hara, New York Times bestselling author of the My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish series
From creative team Deanna Kent and Neil Hooson comes Glam Prix Racers: Fast to the Finish!, the third full-color adventure in their young graphic novel trilogy about a team of fantasy creatures and their magical vehicles who use speed, smarts, and friendship to race their way to the top!
It’s the third and final race of the Glam Prix Cup on Glittergear Island! This time the racers and their motos are off to the twisty, turn-y tracks of Diamond Sands, where they will have to use every last trick up their sleeves to slide through diamond dust dunes and serpentine stunt challenges.
Mio the mermaid, her monster truck Mudwick, and their team are tied for first place with the Vroombot crew, and whoever wins this last race will claim the Glam Prix Cup! Can the Glam Prix Racers work together to best the bots and come out on top?

About the authors

Contributor Notes

Deanna Kent and Neil Hooson, co-creators of the Glam Prix Racers and Snazzy Cat Capers trilogies, have worked on books, brand and marketing campaigns, and interactive experiences. Deanna loves twinkle lights, black licorice, and Edna Mode, and she may be the only person on the planet who says “teamwork makes the dream work” without a hint of sarcasm. Neil is king of a Les Paul guitar, makes killer enchiladas, and really wants aliens to land in his backyard. By far, their greatest creative challenge is raising four (very busy, very amazing) boys.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Glam Prix Racers:
"Wacky Races meets Candy Crush with mermaids and monster trucks! It's impossible NOT to smile as you read. ... Glam Prix Racers fizzes with fast-paced fun!" —Mo O'Hara, New York Times bestselling author of the My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish series
"Bursts with energy ... High-energy from its very first page, Glam Prix Racers is centered on team spirit and adventure, undoubtedly leaving readers anticipating the series' next installment." —Canadian Children's Book Centre
"With ample nods to video games...the plot zooms as easily as a supersonic 'turbo-toot.' Kent’s quirky dialogue provides laughs while Hooson’s cartoon artwork bursts with energy; together, the previous collaborators (the Snazzy Cat Capers series) blend the colorful, high-octane world of race car driving with a candy-coated lesson in friendship and perseverance." —Publishers Weekly
"Animated illustrations will appeal to a range of young readers who will find a character to relate to. ... Each Glam Prix racer demonstrates the importance of adaptability, risk-taking, and perseverance as they face challenges along the way. Perfect for fans of fantasy graphic novels." —School Library Journal
Praise for Snazzy Cat Capers:
"I want to be Ophelia when I grow up!! And I want Oscar to be my BFF—Best Fishy Friend! Snazzy Cat Capers is fabulous, funny and fin-tastic fun with illustrations that pounce off the page." —Mo O’Hara, New York Times bestselling author of the My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish series
"Classy bad girl Ophelia is as funny as she is furry. ... She’s the pussycat love child of James Bond and Zsa Zsa Gabor, and who can’t love that?" —Kirkus Reviews
"More than a just sharply dressed classy kitty. ... Ophelia and Fishgerald squabble and lob quips with amusing ease." —The Bulletin
