Description

Liam and Kai are the best of friends. They do everything together. Each day in the park they race around in their box cars, pretending to be everything from policemen chasing down bad guys to chauffeurs driving around movie stars! One day they notice a little girl watching them -- she's keen to join in and they're happy to be her friends too, but with only two box cars to play with it seems someone's going to be left out. <i>The Box Cars</i> is a fun-filled story of friendship, sharing and creative problem-solving that will appeal to boys and girls everywhere!
