On the third leg of the preeminent Robot Races, Jimmy Roberts and his peer competitors find themselves surrounded by hundreds of miles of ice and snow. The landscape is totally different from those that Axel Lewis created in the previous books in the series - a canyon and a jungle - and Jimmy has a lot to contend with besides the new race course. But he is grateful for the chance to compete in the children's version of Robot Races, and he feels up to this Arctic Adventure.
Joe Jameson performs this science fiction drama for kids with a zeal befitting Jimmy himself. Idiosyncratic characters like Lord Leadpipe, the bully Horace, and Princess Kako are clearly delineated in Jameson's encyclopedic repertoire of voices.
Jimmy Roberts' favourite sport to watch is Robot Races, where drivers and their high-tech robot vehicles compete. When the races' founder announces a special version of the competition just for children, Jimmy and his robot, Cabbie, were thrilled to qualify.
After surviving the canyon and jungle stages, the racers are whisked off to the Arctic, where not everyone is playing fair. Will Horace and Zoom put Jimmy's chances of winning on ice?
