Using only onomatopoeia, Gott creates a lively and entertaining tale of a car race and tells a story of overcoming obstacles. The blue race-car mouse gets a late start because the dust the other cars kick up makes him sneeze. Then all the other mice get stuck in some mud while the blue car mouse careens ahead. Before the blue race-car mouse can celebrate for too long, another obstacle comes along, and he continues to leapfrog his way to the end of the race.
