Publisher's Summary

Every generation has a legend.

Every journey has a first step.

Some heroes are born.

But most are made.

Follow the epic adventures of Alexander Salamander and his best friend William Brown, an average little boy who transforms himself from the physically ordinary to the unexplained extraordinary. When he learns to move like the animals in the forest, he gains a fluid, free form of strength and agility. This he will desperately need because he is in a Great Race against fierce competitors. Magical animals help him get through the darkest, creepiest forest, just crawling with crocodiles, eels and snakes. William soon learns that it takes more than muscle to survive.

    "Inspiring story for kids of all ages!"

    Little William of Common Town and his adventures come to life in this audio version of The Great Race. The voices of all the creatures of the forest and that of the narrator help to convey a large range of emotions! From joyful and excited, to scared and unsure of what's ahead. William Locklear as narrator knocked this one out of the park! Ever switching character voices keep all listeners engaged and actively anticipating what comes next!

    Great book and even better audio book!

    "Wonderful story"
    If you could sum up The Great Race in three words, what would they be?

    Inspirational, Expressive, Fitness


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    William, because he grew so much as a human being throughout the course of the story.


    What does William Locklear bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Locklear's narration of the story is vivid and expressive. A rich layer of immersion is created by the unique voices Locklear lends to each character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A balance in all things can unlock your true potential


    Any additional comments?

    Very fun story that creatively nudges the reader in the direction of physical, intellectual, and spiritual wellness; would recommend to anyone.
