About the Book:
Benson is a Siberian husky, training hard for the
Iditarod. But not everyone racing is as honest as Bensonís trainer.
While crossing a dangerous stretch, Benson will find Rosie, a
red-furred husky dognapped by Zelda, the evil musher. Can Benson save
her? And will rescuing her cost him the race?
Addressing family, work ethics, responsibility,
and tolerance of others, this touching, yet action-packed story
teaches valuable lessons we all must learn. The characters come alive
through magnificent illustrations. Bensonís Race is recommended
for fourth through sixth graders, but is wonderful for reading
to younger children as well.
