In the politics of bedtime, conflict is sometimes resolved by parental fiat, and sometimes by grassroots revolt. In Mitchell’s house, creative negotiation has produced a settlement: Mitchell is issued a license to drive his father to bed at the appropriate time.
—Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books (starred review)
This car and driver know how to have fun together, and the portrayal of father-son bonding is realistic and reassuring. The loose, energetic style of the art, on a clean white background, suits the active story and will please all sorts of young drivers
Minimalist environments, a neutral color palette and the home’s décor epitomize the modern ’50s era, while the bond between father and son is timeless. An incredibly entertaining ride
The pacing is riotous …Big spreads burst with comic energy; [Fucile’s] background in animation and character development is evident in the way the father’s face morphs from interest to exasperation and exhaustion.…Destined for family favoritehood.
Young readers will be tickled, and parents will appreciate the creative bedtime play.
