Dixie O’Day: In the Fast Lane by Shirley Hughes and Clara Vulliamy 

We have read and enjoyed many of Shirley Hughes’ picture books so when we spotted this book in the library we were very keen to have a read! 

It is an early chapter book targeted for developing readers with lots of illustrations on every page. This makes it a perfect bedtime book for Pippa who can struggle to keep her concentration to listen to large blocks of text. 

The story features our hero Dixie and his sidekick Percy. They are extremely likeable characters and in this book they feature in a wacky races style car race complete with a ‘Penelope Pitstop’ type baddie to add to the mischief. 

The chapters are a good length to read one or two per bedtime and each often has a cliffhanger which kept us both keen to read on. 

A great fun read, we shall be looking out for more Dixie O’Day adventures.
