Four on the Run

Four on the Run

Reviewed by Kylie Buckley

Four on the Run is an imaginative chapter book full of fast-paced fun. The narrative centres around four personified vehicles (Maxie, Fergie, Flash and Lady) which live in Mrs Brown’s farmyard shed.

The four retired friends decide to run away when they hear that Mrs Brown is worried about her finances and intends to sell them to the scrap yard. The foursome flees in hope of getting a job in town, but they find that life on the run is not easy!

Four on the Run is an engaging tale with plenty of action to keep the young readers’ attention. The simple monochrome illustrations scattered throughout the book help the audience to visualise the story and characters. This book is suitable for children aged 6+ years to read independently or it’s an equally enjoyable read aloud.
