About this title

Synopsis:

The Longest Day captures the adventures of a father and his son, Jamison, as they attend the grueling 24 Hours of Le Mans. As the race action unfolds, father and son bond as they enjoy the sights, sounds and atmosphere of Le Mans - and cheer their favorite team to victory! After Jamison and his father run into a friend of theirs, who owns the Ecurie Ecosse race team, they have the opportunity to go behind the scenes and get up close and personal to the cars and drivers. The experience causes the young to fall in love with racing - and his father cherishes the opportunity to share this with his son! Inspired by the 1956 running of the classic French event, The Longest Day portrays the dramatic battle between Jaguar and Aston Martin and the amazing racing cars of that era, providing a non-fictional backdrop to the story of Jamison and his father's adventure at Le Mans. The story is written for young readers (early elementary school age) and perfect for parents to read to young children. The story includes some basic racing technical terms designed to spark some "Q&A" from the kids, with a glossary of terms and other helpful information at the back of the book for anyone new to racing.

Review:

"I really enjoyed the compelling - and historically accurate - story. Best of all, it captured the essence of someone discovering the magic of motorsports. That Jamison was able to share the moment with his father makes it even more powerful." -Jade Gurss - author of The Beast, In The Red, DW and more "The Longest Day book sis terrific - I only wish it were written earlier. Sharing with my son who is now racing is very special!" -David Murry - kegendary sportscar driver including multiple Le Mans podiums
