Wheelnuts! Craziest Race on Earth! Book 3. Scholastic Australia, 2015. ISBN 9781743627242
(Age: 7-9) Themes: Car racing, Outerspace, Adventure. The Wheelnuts crazy cars return in another wild race. Warren 'Wheelie' Wheelnut's new challenge for the six cars and their crews is an adventure in space, of course, there are no road rules and the obstacles are out of this world!
Knife and Packer's imagination and creativity make this graphic junior novel an exciting action-packed adventure, the crazier the better! There's the Rust Bucket 3000 driven by robots Nutz and Boltz, The Flying Nappy with Gurle and Burp on board - leading to lots of gross jokes and the Dino-Wagon's crew is Turbo Rex and Flappy a pterodactyl out to win.
The adventure begins at the Space Centre where Warren reveals the six cars have been mechanically upgraded to rockets for their outer-space race. With space junk obstacles, cheating drivers and diversions to other planets for special adventures.
Humorous, comical, colourful, gross and outrageous Knife and Packer deliver all the elements for another mad Wheelnuts race.
