From a New York Times–bestselling author and Caldecott Medal-winning artist, this story of a royal race car driver is “a shot of gleeful adrenaline” (Publishers Weekly (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 in this exciting ode to auto racing. With appearances by fable and 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.
“The full-page illustrations are saturated with color and express the action so vividly readers will nearly hear the roar of the racetrack. The emphasis on the Princess’ racing skill and zeal for her sport is empowering and refreshing.” —Kirkus Reviews
“With its breakneck speed and massive number of storybook references, The Princess and the Pit Stop is sure to be a story time favorite.” —Shelf Awareness
