Synopsis

Driving to Bed by Hallie Durand

Hop in for a hilarious, heartwarming ride with a speed-loving three-year-old on his way to bed...with a very special licence to drive. Three-year-old Mitchell may need a little boost getting into the driving seat (on his dad's shoulders), but once he's behind the wheel, his car sure goes fast! Left turn, right turn, slow down for speed bumps - Mitchell is a pro. And he loves the way that horn sounds! There's just one problem: Mitchell and his car have a slight disagreement about what type of fuel should go into the tank...With warmth and sly wit, Driving to Bed 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.
