More About the Author
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.

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.
