The Princess and the Pit Stop (Hardcover)
The Princess finds out she is in last place in the car race. What does she do? She hits the gas and passes notable fairy tale characters one after the other. Angleberger's words combine with Santat's illustrations to create a joyous celebration of strong girls.— Cathy
. . . who made a pit stop.
While the Birds and Beasts changed her tires, her Fairy Godmother told her she was in last place! With just one lap left! She might as well give up!
Give up? Not THIS princess! Instead, she hit the gas!
Join Her Royal Highness in the driver’s seat for a mad dash to the finish in this exciting ode to auto racing. With appearances by fairy tale favorites including the Tortoise and the Hare, the Frog Prince, and ALL of the Wicked Witches, this rollicking mash-up of race cars and royalty is a true celebration of both girl power and horsepower.
About the Author
"The only bump in the road for this turbo charged tribute to girl power is the dilemma that libraries will face in having to choose between the equally compelling jacket and covers. Best-selling Angelberger and Caledecott-winner Santat are proven successes, and this high-energy, girl-powered tale will zoom right off shelves."
"Rocket-fueled panel artwork by Santat (After the Fall) gleams like carbon fiber. His rendering of Angleberger’s (the Origami Yoda series) inspired injection of sports-network energy into fairyland produces a shot of gleeful adrenaline whose only fault, like the best of things, is that it’s over too soon."
