    1. Édouard Manceau Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Race book, this is one of the most wanted Édouard Manceau author readers around the world.

    2. Fun book with original art that reminded me life is a race we must all run at our own pace.

    3. I m fairly sure I ll forget about this book by the end of the day The illustrations are cute with the papercut big eyed reindeer or guys, as they re called throughout the book which made me think maybe they should have all been weird little blobs or shapes or something else not recognizable and their comedic hijinks The story is full of the winning losing lesson and how to be realistic about life and stuff but, when it s all said and done, there s nothing amazing about this story It s nice in th [...]

    4. The race is on, but the rules are loose, the race is long, and some caribou will do anything to win.Oh wow, this was totally not what I expected from the cover This is hilarious Picture a group of cartoon caribou off on a race and they can do just about anything short of killing each other to win It s pretty funny This one lost nothing in translation to English from French The illustration style is charming, and it features caribou fun and unique is that

    5. I found this quite humorous It s translated from French, which I ve almost always found an indication that things should not be taken seriously In this case the featured racers apparently caribou demonstrate winning, losing, and the choices we make along the way There s opportunity to talk through ethical dilemmas do you enact retribution for the banana peel trick and whether winning, or even finishing, is important.

    6. The humor in this book will probably go over little kid s heads but for the older picture book readers, this should be a hoot, especially if the know someone who does marathons I loved the very dry humor of this silly story.

    7. There is nothing new about life as a race metaphors, but one certainly can t find fault with a very nicely dry ironic French depiction of life as a race via goofy papercut reindeer characters.

    8. A bunch of guys who happen to be caribou run a race Not everyone finishes Is the true winner the guy who crosses the finish line first You decide.

    9. Several critters decide to run in a race, but things get complicated If aliens needed to see how a race worked this would sort of be a good introduction though it s a combination of a race and Mario cart Anyway, it s fun, though maybe tell kids if they re in a race they shouldn t do these things to each other No content issues.

    10. After preparing a starting line, an avid race fan sets up a race among six caribou Once the race begins, the runners begin playing tricks on each other Some find the race too hard and drop out while others persevere In the end, only one can be the first to cross the finish line But does that mean he s the only winner The text and illustrations seem to indicate that there s than one way to win this metaphoric race While I get the message and the reminder to enjoy life along the way, this book ju [...]

    11. The whole story is about running a race how the runners prepare, the tricks they use to beat their opponents, how some of the runners give up before they ve finished the race, and the spoils that go to the sole victor The text moves back and forth between describing the action and speaking metaphorically about the race I didn t like how mean the characters were to one another I didn t like the way if you picture read the story it feels very uncomfortable beginning with the starter pistol and the [...]

    12. Another translation this one from French that I don t think quite works in English Or, the French have a different sense of humor I very much enjoyed the illustrations, little caribou guys running a race The race, however, is a metaphor for life, so the caribou who stops in the middle and decides to settle down and enjoy himself instead ends up being the real winner which may not be clear to a very young child A valuable lesson for sure, but I m not convinced the book communicates it that well f [...]

    13. Yay for a caribou story that has nothing to do with Christmas These caribou run a race They do tricky things to each other in order to come in first One of them decides to not finish the race, but to enjoy life instead Good for preschool storytime.

    14. Definitely a forgettable book Really, nothing than a book about a race Maybe a lesson on poor sportsmanshipYBE Even the illustrations were mediocre to me I simply can t see this being a favorite of kids.
