Gr PreS-3 On your marks, get set, go! So begins a very unusual race where every child rides a different vehicle. The tricycle takes an early lead, but is quickly surpassed by the scooter, which in turn gets overtaken by a jeep, and so on and so forth. Whenever one kid passes another, the previous vehicle's front end peeks over the left-hand page, while the new leader fully occupies the right. In their moment of glory, each child is sure of their victory, however the narrator breaks the fourth wall to question this, making us wonder what will come next and who really will win. After steadily building up our excitement, Wielockx genuinely surprises us with her answer. She gives the often hollow assurance, "everyone's a winner", new validity with her clever ending. Even more important is how she actually means, everyone. Boys and girls from various ethnicities participate, and each has an equal chance of winning. VERDICT From the checkered starting line on the front cover, to the finish line on the back, I Won is a complete package; it's a fun, colourful book, with a lively pace and tone, and topping it all off, is a meaningful message.
