New York Times bestselling author Tom Angleberger and Caldecott Medal–winning Dan Santat’s picture book The Princess and the Pit Stop is a “turbo charged tribute to girl power” (Booklist, Starred Review).
Once upon a time there was a Princess . . .
. . . who made a pit stop.
While the Birds and Beasts changed her tires, her Fairy Godmother told her she was in last place! With just one lap left! She might as well give up!
Give up? Not THIS princess! Instead, she hit the gas!
Join Her Royal Highness in the driver’s seat for a mad dash to the finish line in this exciting ode to auto racing. With appearances by fairy tale favorites including the Tortoise and the Hare, the Frog Prince, and ALL of the Wicked Witches, this rollicking mash-up of race cars and royalty is a true celebration of both girl power and horsepower.
“Rocket-fueled panel artwork by Santat gleams like carbon fiber. His rendering of Angleberger’s inspired injection of sports-network energy into fairyland produces a shot of gleeful adrenaline whose only fault, like the best of things, is that it’s over too soon.” —Publishers Weekly
