When Annie’s dad promises her a beach sports car she imagines a bright red hotrod with racing car stripes. All her school friends will be so jealous! But it will take a lot of work to turn Dad’s battered old bomb into the car of Annie’s dreams. Then again, hard work can sometimes make the rewards seem so much sweeter.

An illustrated first chapter book about using your imagination to make everything old, new again.
