Frankie Pickle returns for another imaginative adventure and this time it all comes down to race cars. Well, not quite race cars, but the Pine Run Derby for scouts. Frankie is in danger of not advancing to the next ranking with the rest of his troop unless he can win the Pine Run 3000. But Frankie wants to do everything on his own so he imagines himself as a world-class sculptor, a mad scientist, and of course, a pro-racecar driver. In the end, Frankie learns that team work is the only way he won't get left in the dust.

Frankie was a droopy lump on the couch when Dad got home. “Why so glum, Chum?” said Dad. “I kind of crashed my car at school.” As the words came out, Frankie started to cry. Dad put his arm around him and said, “Why don’t we have a look at it. I’m sure it’s not as bad as you think.” Frankie spilled the contents of his backpack onto

Kenny pulled out his harmonica and started playing the blues. “Oh,” said Frankie. “Sorry you didn’t win.” Kenny gave a little shrug and smiled. He was happy that at least one of them was advancing.
