The Race – Owlkids

The Race

From 3 to 7 | 64 pages

Get ready, get set, GO…

A group of caribou gather together to run a race. Starting at the beginning of course, readers join in the fun as the caribou engage in some rather outlandish tricks in order to be the first to cross the finish line. (Banana skins, for example, are an effective way to get rid of some enemies ...). But in the midst of this titanic struggle for victory, some of the caribou stop to question the merits of their single-minded pursuit of winning at all costs.

In the end, the reader is left to decide who the real winner is…
