Book Review. Age Six Racer. Joe Vercillo.  

Now, I’m not sure if it’s like this for every guy out there, but it seems like the main underlying reason for everything I do is because of a girl. It was ‘the girl’ who made me run away from my hometown. And it was ‘the girl’ who almost got me killed. But it was also because of ‘the girl’ that I ended up in New York City with my three best friends on a mad adventure.
My name is Princeton, and I’m a white-footed mouse.

Princeton is a great character. In a lot of ways he reminds me of an older Stuart Little. 

Age Six Racer does meander at points, going into great details about small matters, such as nicknames, that don’t hurry the story along, but does help flesh out the characters.

Many parallels are drawn between humans and vermin. Princeton, and his friends, ride in cars, have fears, fall in love, party, take drugs, there is a pecking order, and one of his friends, Charlotte, is a jerboa, and is a refugee from Syria. 

There is a romance element to Age Six Racer, which I felt was redundant at the end of the book, as it is mentioned on almost every page, but not resolved.  There are some astute relationship observations from a male perspective. 

With the New York backdrop, and easily identifiable characters, the imagery is good, and the adventures fun. I felt this book would make a good video game, with its shifting locations of central park, the subway, luxurious homes, sewers, and bats, pigeons, cats, mice, rats, and humans.
