Reeve and McIntyre bring you another rip-roaring read!
The Race to the Top of the World! It comes around once in a lifetime, and the prize? Your heart’s desire. Shen and Sika can’t resist the chance to win, but competition is fierce. The path to victory is littered with snow trolls, sea monsters, and a gang of particularly hungry yetis. But Shen and Sika have something the other contestants don’t have. Actually, they have 66 other things; pugs to be exact. That’s a 264 paw-powered sled!
Bursting with stunning illustration throughout, this is a book not to be missed!

Publisher Review

'Another delight from the Reeve and McIntyre dream team' * The School Librarian * 'The story is packed full of jokes, characters and incident and the plentiful illustrations, with their suitably icy green palette, are equally delightful with lots of detail.' * Lesley Martin, The School Librarian * 'Marries the very different talents of Reeve and McIntyre to fabulous effect' * Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide * 'Immersive, richly textured, and enormous fun. It's a great example of what illustrated children's novels can achieve' * The Guardian * 'A gloriously wacky story' * The Times * Praise for Oliver and the Seawigs A fun-packed delight * Daily Telegraph * Praise for Cakes in Space Children will love the chaotic fun and cartoonish illustrations in this fast paced fantasy * Daily Mail * 'The whole book is a race and I can't wait to read the whole book to find out what happens in the end.' * Rachel Zinkin, age 8, for * ' engaging story for children (and, in my case at least, adults) who have the ability to read alone but aren't yet ready to give up the pleasure of heavily illustrated books.' * Z J Cookson, The BookBag * 'As the story dashes along so, too, do the illustrations, which are a delight on every page.' * Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian * 'It's their best book yet ... Reeve and McIntyre are a classic team ... The climax is moving and beautifully judged.' * Alex O'Connell, 'Children's Book of the Week', The Times *
