Day 95. Racing Ruby is one of the Little Mates series that all seem to be alliterating stories with Australian animals. This one is naturally crammed full of R words, and set under the sea with a racing rainbow fish, it has a frenetic pace and engaging illustrations. There's good words, too - like ricochet and rankle. I give it lots of credit for creativity, and would love to read it again.
Master A's verdict: Good length for attention span.
