Genre: Coming of Age/Action-Adventure
“Princeton and the gang are back in this action-adventure sequel to Age Six Racer. When their best friend, Charlotte, goes missing, Princeton, Troy and Juice go out on a mission to find her and end up in London, England where an underground war is raging between rats and mice.”
“Joe Vercillo is a Canadian singer-songwriter/author from Toronto, Ontario. Stumbling upon the love of his life, he journeyed down to Princeton, New Jersey, and found a dead mouse in a garage. The rest is history.”
London Racer chronicles the continuing adventures of the mouse named Princeton and his rodent buddies. As with Age Six Racer, the first of this trilogy, I’m surprised at how easily I bought into the premise of these pests as intelligent and caring beings. This story is full of adventure, with wars, international travel, and a literal rat race all playing a part. Throw in a little romance to make Princeton seem even more human and the result is a quick, fun change of pace from my normal reads.
While this is the second book in the series it could be read as a stand-alone.
No significant issues.
