Publisher's Summary

Jimmy Roberts' favourite sport to watch is Robot Races, where drivers and their high-tech robot vehicles compete. When the races' founder announces a special version of the competition just for children, Jimmy and his robot, Cabbie, were thrilled to qualify.

After surviving the canyon and jungle stages, the racers are whisked off to the Arctic, where not everyone is playing fair. Will Horace and Zoom put Jimmy's chances of winning on ice?

I’m too old for this

Who flies a bunch of kids to the back of beyond without parents? I checked this out with an audible package. It’s simplistic stories like this that led child me to wildly underestimate the work & planning upfront that experts do before any expedition or contest. Magically self repairing robots may be fun but they didn’t make any sense to me. And did no one have to use the bathroom before heading out?

The morality tale of “don’t leave people to die”was heavy handed and lacking nuance. Meanwhile, I didn’t get why Cabbie disregarded Lightning as a competitor when that team had the best start & high standing. Why did Jimmy have such disdain for his sponsor? That wasn’t right.
I think kids might like this story more than I did.

Narration: Very well done with clear & distinct voicing, varied for each character.
