Inspired by Milka’s life and racing career, the book was a longtime dream and a true labor of love for her and she was involved in every step of the process - from creation to production.

Race car driver Milka Duno is a playful, studious, and mischievous child as she races and competes through the inspiring pages of this children's book. Milka shares her most tender early childhood memories, her desire to learn and achieve, and the dedication necessary to succeed, from the first school days in Caracas, Venezuela, to the competitions at racing circuits all over the world. Through the story, young readers are inspired by her message: the value of education, the pleasure of competing and winning, the importance of a team effort, and that determination, solidarity and generosity are the main ingredients to a successful life.
