Headline Kids, a division of Headline Books, has released Funny Dan the Race Car Man by award-winning writer Tim Packman this week. The book is part of the NASCAR Library Collection and is illustrated by talented artist Brendan Sellaro, a student at West Virginia University.
Funny Dan is a NASCAR driver who competes for the pure joy of being involved in something he loves. His passion for racing is the one thing that motivates him to compete and, despite the fact he’s never been to victory lane, he’s still a winner to his family, friends and fellow competitors.
Children will enjoy the antics and hilarity of Funny Dan and his crew as they take part in the Super Fast 500, the biggest race of the year. Between his crew and fellow drivers, Funny Dan shows what it’s like to be a winner on, and off, the track.
A native of Buffalo, N.Y., and now resident of Mooresville, N.C., Packman previously authored Bobby Allison – A Racer’s Racer and contributed two stories to Chicken Soup for the Soul – NASCAR II. He’s also won several media awards as a writer and for his work in covering motorsports for almost two decades. He is currently the Communications Director for R3 Motorsports; the No. 23 Dodge in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
Packman will be a featured author in New York City at the Book Expo America May 24-26. Funny Dan will be there, too, looking sharp in his Sparco racing suit.
