We have nine books in this Puzzle series (Ocean, Planet, Castle, Pyramid, Dungeon, Farm, Jungle, Mountain, and Car Race). We just got this one and it's a bit different than the rest. In general, it's the same formula with a few slight changes. There are several puzzles regarding calculating the time, and some addition. This is the first book in the series that I have encountered with time telling puzzles. For example, one puzzle asks when the car race started, after telling you that they started off 15 minutes after they arrived. So, you need to look at the clock, be able to read it to say it's 8:15am, and then know that 15 minutes later would be 8:30am. Once we calculated the time together the first time we read it, the boys aren't really interested in doing that puzzle again. They already know the answer. So, I don't see it as very interesting on a re-reading basis.

Also, the book is lacking the feature where they show you a set of 10-12 objects on the intro page, and you have to find one on each double page spread. It does have a person you are supposed to locate on each page, but not the feature of finding the myriad objects (one of the features of the other books that my boys most enjoy).

In general, I did not like the puzzles in this book as much as the puzzles in the others. The concept of the story is a nice one (they are competing in a road race), but I was vaguely disappointed in the puzzle execution. My boys (4 and 6) like the book, and have been reading it on vacation, but I think that is the newness novelty of it. Ocean, Planet, Pyramid and Dungeon are probably their favorites.

Pass on this one... We LOVE these Usborne Young Puzzles and have many of the books written by Susannah Leigh. This one, Puzzle Car Race, is our first of the series written by Rosie Heywood that we have purchased. The difference was noticeable and this one pales in comparison. The format of the other books that we love - find the lost items, look for the bad guys, and look for a recurring item - is missing from this book. The puzzles on each page were not as complex but yet in a way they were geared to an older child (maybe a 6-8 year old) than Leigh's (geared to a 4-6 year old). I was disappointed by the weak puzzles on most of the pages and the flow of the story was choppy. If you have a younger kid, buy the Usborne Young Puzzle books by Susannah Leigh instead. You will not be disappointed in those!

We really enjoy all of the Usborne Young Puzzle books. Each page is a new challenge - to find certain items in the picture, to count, to travel through a maze, etc. Each book has a new setting, so this one is all about a car race. That doesn't mean that girls and boys alike won't enjoy it, though. My son and daughter both enjoyed it and immediately wanted to find other books that are similar.

The time telling puzzles in this book were beyond my 5 year old. The maze type puzzles and object finding puzzles were simpler than those in other puzzle books (eg Puzzle Jungle). I did like the imaginary country that the race took place in, which was not recognizably any particular place but a place with characteristics of its own.
