What do libraries and car races have in common? They're both major parts of Pee Wee's life in this funny and thrilling story set in 1914. Pee Wee's life revolves around her big brother, Jake, and their auto garage. But when four young librarians come to reopen their town's library, Jake and Pee Wee's lives are changed forever.
Peck's plucky tale has treats for every kind of reader. Lots of information about automobiles and racing are perfect for car enthusiasts, and for the girl who may be struggling with being both a tomboy and a young woman, Pee Wee sets a great example. With a dash of romance and hilarious characters like The Colonel (who always thinks he's in the midst of the Civil War), this book by award-winning author Peck is great for readers in grades 4-8.
