Road Rescue Excerpt:

It was a sunny morning on Ahway Island. Colin Car sat patiently waiting in his garage even though he was feeling excited. This afternoon, his driver, Courtney, would be taking them on a road trip up the island to visit some of Courtney’s relatives. Colin wasn’t exactly sure which road they would be taking, but no matter which road they took, he knew there would be interesting things to see.


Colin didn’t have to wait for too long. Just as he was imagining which one of Ahway Island’s roads he might drive on this morning, or which of his friends he might see on the road, he heard the door to the house open and close. It was Courtney, which meant they would be on the road soon!


Courtney came into the garage from the house and opened the big rolling garage door so that Colin could back out. Courtney sat down in the driver seat and fastened the seat belt before guiding Colin to carefully back up out of the garage.
