Most mornings when the two met and went to school together, Kevin was a red Jaguar and Robbie was a yellow Sting-Ray. They raced through the park and the school yard, braking, steering, and finally switching off the engine at the school door. Because they shared their interest in cars, Robbie was loyal to Kevin no matt e r w h a t . This was not always easy. There were things missing in the schoolroom, and Kevin seemed to blame. Robbie's mother did not really approve of Kevin. And one trouble led to another. Yet Robbie remained faithful to his friend.
