An acclaimed, winning tale about losing — from champion humorist and three-time Geisel-recipient Greg Pizzoli

They’re off! Sam is the best race-car driver in history — he is number one at every race! But when his best friend, Maggie, shows that she has racing talent of her own, Sam doesn’t know how to handle coming in second place. Will he learn what it truly means to be a winner? With his signature light touch, Greg Pizzoli’s upbeat story about being a good sport is perfect for read-aloud.
