Pugs of the Frozen North – Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre

The path to victory is littered with snow trolls, sea monsters, and a gang of particularly hungry yetis. But Shen and Sika have something the other contestants don’t have. Actually, they have 66 other things; pugs to be exact. That’s a 264 paw-powered sled. Let the race begin!
