In a timeless tale of small moments and big victories, two boys' singular obsession with an elusive prize pays off in a most surprising way.James has five quarters and Danny has four. That means nine whole tries to get the little silver race car out of the gumball machine at Mr. Wright's store after school. Only very, very lucky people get both gumballs and the silver racer. It's a good thing that one of James's quarters is a Canadian quarter, which just so happens to be very, very lucky. But is it lucky enough to get him that silver racer? Bing! Bang! Kaboom! He's about to find out! Retro-style illustrations in vivid colors add to the classic feel of this new story by poet Nancy Willard, author of the 1982 Newbery Medal winner, A Visit to William Blake's Inn.

This is really a sweet book. My 5 year old boy loves it. It really describes the joy kids find in collecting quarters, and using them in the gumball machine for a chance to win a prize. Also talks about lucky coins, and has inspired my son to really value the uniqueness of coins. I love everything about this book. The words, pictures are just great.
