Mama Lion Wins the Race by Jon J. MuthStart your engines: The race is on! And Mama Lion and Tigey are off -- with their cool goggles and snazzy sports car!
Racing teams gather from far and wide for this madcap race. But who will take home the big trophy? Will it be the playful Flying Pandinis? The mischievous Knitted Monkey crew? Or will Mama Lion and Tigey speed past the finish line in first place?
While everyone hopes to win, its the journey itself -- filled with joy, beauty, fun, and friendships -- that is the best prize of all.
With cars inspired by the early days of Italian motor racing, and characters based on his childrens beloved toy animals, Jon J Muth has created a uniquely spellbinding book that readers will return to again and again.
Mama Lion Wins the Race
Thank you! In this departure for Muth from his Zen books about Stillwater the panda, several stuffed animals speed across a glorious European countryside in classic race cars—and on one impressive motorcycle—and, with some strategic help from Mama Lion, everyone wins. When Tigey and Mama Lion lose a wheel in a sudden stop, the rotund Flying Pandini brother and sister come to their aid—but the race is still close. The joy of speed, the excitement of obstacles, the reassurance of friendship and assistance, and the satisfaction of having the race turn out just the right way are nicely in proportion. The generous trim size and edge-to-edge art support the exuberant presentation. Delightful and sweet, with a dose of whimsy and the special appeal of fast cars and competition.
The race is on and Mama Lion and young Tigey are off! The Italian countryside provides the backdrop for this charming tale of friendship and monkey hijinks. Translucent watercolors illustrate the race with spiffy cars driven by toys come to life are worth reexamining. Author Interviews Meet your favorite authors and illustrators in our video interviews.
