Description


“Tailor-made for the very young. An absolute delight.” — School Library Journal

A day at the park. A ride on Daddy’s back. Run, Daddy! Faster! Faster! How fast can Daddy go? Faster than a dog? A horse? How about a cheetah? Leslie Patricelli reprises the duo from Boston Globe–Horn Book Honor winner Higher! Higher! in another humorous riff on a favorite pastime — a laugh-out-loud-funny tale of few words about doting dads and high-energy kids whose imaginations know no bounds.

The boldly colored, uncluttered pictures with minimal backgrounds are perfect for preschoolers, and the repetitive text is tailor-made for the very young. An absolute delight.

Gradually drawing back from fantasy to reality, the book's ending will amuse parents as much as children. Bold, black lines define the simple forms in these colorful acrylic paintings. A satisfying sequel to a well-loved picture book.
