Written in a charming poetic style, author Thomas Hardy provides the reader with a look back to the day when racing events between countries such as England and France drew hundreds of enthusiastic crowds.
His character Irish farmer, Padraig Dolan, endeavors to win the race with his prize potato racer challenging other vegetables in the 1907 Grand Prix of Legumes in the French countryside. This is a wonderfully inventive interpretation of vintage racing days. Ideal for the young and young at heart.
Beautifully illustrated children's book. Hardbound.
