My name is Lightning McQueen and I'm a race car. Maybe you have seen one of the Pixar CARS movies I've been featured in. In this picture book I would like to be your guide to Radiator Springs. I'll show you all the cool places where all the Cars gang hang out.

Of course, our first stop has to be the Motor Speedway of the South. This is where I got my first break in racing. We'll check out the Skybox in the grandstands, the place where RV folks park, the pit area, and Mack's trailer truck which was my home away from home when I was on the circuit.

Then it's on to Radiator Springs where we'll visit Coc's Garage, Flo's V8 Café, Ramone's House of Body Art, Casa Della Tires and a lot of other places I know you'll want to see. I'll introduce you to my friends too.

By the time we are finished you'll know a lot about my home town and what happens there. And, if you like cars, you'll see all sorts of really neat customized and stock machines. Now, I ask you, how cool is that?

Although boys three years of age and older will love the pictures and enjoy hearing about my town, I think lots of girls will like it too. Hey, everyone went to see our movie so why wouldn't they fall in love with this book as well?
