From the creator of Bear in Underwear! and Rawr! comes a silly and heartwarming story about a polite, but clumsy racecar driver who discovers that winning isn't everything. Meet Rod. He isn't the best racer in town. In fact, he's never even made it to the finish line. But that has never stopped him from competing each and every year in the local Grand Prix. And with the help of his friends, maybe this will be his year to shine! An adorable racing tale filled with heart, humor, and good sportsmanship, Hot Rod Hot Dog is a story about never giving up, being the best you can be, and ultimately learning that playing the game is just as important as winning. Plus, with a novelty turnwheel on the front cover, Hot Rod Hot Dog is a hands-on read!
