"Families who prefer the wear-’em-out strategy over lullabies and gentle good-night poems might consider opening their own DMV." — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)
Hop in for a hilarious, heartwarming ride with Mitchell, a kid with a need for speed. He may require a little boost getting into the driver’s seat, but once he’s behind the wheel, his "car" sure goes fast! With warmth and sly wit, Hallie Durand follows a young child obsessed with all things automobile, while Tony Fucile’s comical illustrations convey the well-tuned bond between an obliging father and a high-octane child.
