“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.
Hallie Durand’s favorite dessert is vanilla ice cream drowned in hot-fudge sauce. She grew up in a large, food-loving family much like the one in her books. But unlike Dessert, Hallie had to eat dessert after supper. When she’s not writing, she likes to visit fondue restaurants to do “research.” Hallie lives with her family in New Jersey.
