about this item
A trickster tale with a sweet ending puts a big cat through his paces in this charming picture book. Cheetah is not only certain that he's going to win the big race, but he's really, really loud about it. However, when two wily cats put their deeply silly, but effective, plans into play, Cheetah might not have a chance. The crux of their sneaky plan is a pie-eating contest before the race that Cheetah handily wins. And he just has to eat the congratulatory sundae and don the winner's ensemble of an enormous crown and foot boxes. What's going to happen at the race? With Bob Shea's colorful illustrations.
An overly confident cheetah challenges a pack of clever kittens to a race.
