Glam Prix Racers: Back on Track! (Hardcover)
"Wacky Races meets Candy Crush ... Fizzes with fast-paced fun!" —Mo O'Hara, New York Times bestselling author of the My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish series
From creative team Deanna Kent and Neil Hooson comes Glam Prix Racers: Back on Track!, the second full-color adventure in their young graphic novel trilogy about a team of fantasy creatures and their magical vehicles who use speed, smarts, and friendship to race their way to the top!
It’s the second race of the Glam Prix Cup on Glittergear Island! This time the racers and their motos are off to Soft Swirl City, where they will have to navigate slippery candy tracks, collect glittergum power balls, and—most importantly—avoid getting caught by the Gummy Mummy!
Mio the mermaid, her monster truck Mudwick, and their team are fresh off their win in the first round, but the mischievous Vroombot crew is up to their usual naughty tricks. Can the Glam Prix Racers escape the sticky situation in time to claim another sweet victory?
Deanna Kent and Neil Hooson have worked on books, brand and marketing campaigns, and interactive experiences. Deanna loves twinkle string lights, black licorice, and Edna Mode, and may be the only person on the planet who says "teamwork makes the dream work" without a hint of sarcasm.
By far, their greatest creative challenge is raising four (very busy, very amazing) boys. Snazzy Cat Capers is their first chapter book series.

"Wacky Races meets Candy Crush with mermaids and monster trucks! It's impossible NOT to smile as you read. ... Glam Prix Racers fizzes with fast-paced fun!" —Mo O'Hara, New York Times bestselling author of the My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish series
"Bursts with energy ... High-energy from its very first page, Glam Prix Racers is centered on team spirit and adventure, undoubtedly leaving readers anticipating the series' next installment." —Canadian Children's Book Centre
"With ample nods to video games, including character cards filled with stats, an anthropomorphic cast, and the occasional hidden power-up, the plot zooms as easily as a supersonic 'turbo-toot.'

"Animated illustrations will appeal to a range of young readers who will find a character to relate to. ... Each Glam Prix racer demonstrates the importance of adaptability, risk-taking, and perseverance as they face challenges along the way. Perfect for fans of fantasy graphic novels." —School Library Journal
