About The Book

Frankie Pickle returns for another imaginative adventure—drag racing! Well, not quite drag racing, but the Pine Run Derby for scouts. Frankie may not advance to the next rank with the rest of his troop if he doesn’t win the race. Frankie wants to do everything on his own and imagines himself as a mad scientist, a professional magician, and even a Greek sculptor completing his masterpiece. But in the end, Frankie learns that teamwork is the only way he won’t get left in the dust.
