Mitchell's License

Illustrated by Tony Fucile

Mitchell never EVER wants to go to bed . . . 

That is, until the night his dad says he can get his license and drive there.  After a careful inspection of his new cars tires, a spiffy wash of the windshield, and a honk of the horn, Mitchell takes off on a bedtime road trip to remember.  Steering through an obstacle course of speed bumps, near misses, and sharp turns, Mitchell's trusty car cruises him smoothly to tuck-in time and the open road in his dreams.

 

"Sure to become a classic for the ‘but I’m not tired yet set."

—People

 

"Mitchell, an overwrought toddler who almost (but not quite) rules the domestic roost, is instantly recognizable as every tyke who gets a second wind after nine o’clock."

—Starred review, Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

 

"The pacing is riotous . . . This one is destined for family favoritehood."

—Publishers Weekly

 

"An incredibly entertaining ride."

—Kirkus Reviews
