More About the Author

I grew up in the farm country of upstate New York, at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains--there was lots of blackberry picking, pigs and chickens, cats and kittens, bikes, bees, homemade bread-and-butter pickles, sweet corn, and pure maple syrup. Lots of wood-stacking and lawn-mowing, too. My sisters and I (and later my brother) spent a lot of time making tiny campfires in the driveway and singing loudly in the hay barn. I still think of myself as a country girl in New York City, where I headed straight after college. Many years have passed and I'm still in love with the place--all these millions of people living together in relative peace--the sound and the stink and the beauty and the buildings--it's where I feel most myself.

Until now I've published all of my work under this pen name, my Dessert trilogy and my three picture books: Mitchell's License (Mitchell Goes Driving in pb), Mitchell Goes Bowling, and Catch That Cookie!. But my first stand-alone middle-grade novel will be published under my own name, Holly M. McGhee, by Candlewick Press in Spring 2017.

This is by far the hit of my 3 year-old grandson's summer! He's been laughing and squealing with delight. He's "driving" his mommas crazy ... into doors, walls, couches, etc.!! I think their ears are a bit sore from being the steering wheel!

By Tammy on June 14, 2011
Format: Hardcover
My 4-year-old son loves driving his pedal car so this was the perfect book for him!

Mitchell is 3-year-old little boy who never wanted to go to bed until his dad told him he could drive there in his "car" (aka - his dad!). Mitchell inspected the tires (feet), checked the engine (belly), and hopped into the driver's seat (on dad's shoulders). He cleans off the dirty windshield (glasses), puts the car in drive (using his dad's ears) and off they go. When he needs to pull the brakes he tugs on his dad's hair.

The next night he gave his "car" some oil (drink of water), closed the hood (shut his mouth), and got back into the driver's seat. This time he decided his car needed gas (cookies). The car spoke back and told him "no". They did a U-turn and went straight to bed. That night Mitchell dreamed of driving in a car to a gas station filled with cookies.

My child loved turning each page to find out what car part he would see next. He laughed each time. When we finished he wanted to read it again and again.

This was a fun, cute, heart-warming book that had my four year old grinning from ear to ear. I even found myself laughing throughout the book! This book brings back so many memories of me becoming a vehicle for my kids. Talk about having a license, my girls would direct me like the best of them, just like you see from Mitchell. This is definitely a story that any parent will relate to and will enjoy and that any child will simply love due to the well written nature of the book, but also the crazy antics of the characters themselves. All-in-all this book shows the love between a father and child which is priceless!

Although we do not own a copy of this book it will be made a permanent fixture to the kids book case soon. We originally checked it out from our local library right before vacation so the kids could have some new bedtime reading material. It was an instant hit, even with my 8 year old. She thinks it's hilarious and helps me read it to her two younger brothers. They all especially love the page where Mitchell drives his dad into the wall. "Ruh-Roh! BONK!" gets them laughing every time. If your kids love to laugh this is a great, light-hearted book to get their funny bones tickled. LOVE IT!

My boys are older, but even they laugh at this great story book aimed at the sippy-cup crowd. Mitchell's daddy becomes his vehicle, transporting him to bed. Mitchell learns how to operate his dad: the horn, the brakes, the steering. It's very cute - very nice, normal family.

While funny, I wish Tony Fucille had gone just a bit lighter on the physical battering - Mitchell really manhandles his daddy.
