The Hill Racers - Look Out, Here We Come

Look out, here comes the read-aloud adventure for older children.

“The Hill Racers, that’s us. Out of the way, this is where we play!” There’s never a dull moment with the Hill Racers. So it’s lucky for Ricki that after having to make the “stupid move” to a big new town with his family, he has made friends so quickly in this little gang. Together, they experience all kinds of exciting things, mostly water bomb fights and Halloween pumpkin races against the “Dry Paddler Stream Pirates gang”. Who knows what other (read-aloud) adventures await readers here?

The Hill Racers: The name stands for exciting gang fun; authentic, mischievous characters and stories of friendship, self-confidence and courage – just right for reading aloud to older children of six and over.
