Wacky RacesBook - 2015
Riding a horse bareback has been done throughout history. But what about buffalo riding? In Thailand, racers hop on the bare back of buffalo and try to circle a racetrack! Readers can see photographs of this strange race and many more, while learning about competitions held all over the world. Some, such as soapbox derbies, may sound familiar, while others, such as outhouse racing, are truly wacky! A colorful layout and fact boxes with additional details keep readers' attention as they race around the world on the back of a camel, through mud pits, and even dressed as Santa!
