Frankie Pickle and the Pine Run 3000 by Eric Wight

My 9 year old loves to read. But lately he’s been getting a little too into comic books for my liking. Luckily Eric Wight has covered all the bases by making an interesting “hybrid” book that my son loves and I don’t feel bad about letting him read.

The illustrations are fun, the writing is interesting, and the stories include lessons that really stick with the reader.

I think the most telling thing about this book is the fact that before he was even done, my son was asking if we could order more in this series. Mr. Wight has a winner and I’m glad we found it!

Frankie Pickle returns for another imaginative adventure and this time it all comes down to race cars. Well, not quite race cars, but the Pine Run Derby for scouts. Frankie is in danger of not advancing to the next ranking with the rest of his troop unless he can win the Pine Run 3000. But Frankie wants to do everything on his own so he imagines himself as a world-class sculptor, a mad scientist, and of course, a pro-racecar driver. In the end, Frankie learns that team work is the only way he won’t get left in the dust.
