Mitchell's License

author: Hallie Durand
illustrator: Tony Fucile

series name:
Mitchell Goes

Mitchell was four years, one month, and five days old when he got his license. He may need a little boost getting into the driverís seat, but once heís behind the wheel, his car sure goes fast! Left turn, right turn, slow down for speed bumps - Mitchell is a pro. And he loves the way that horn sounds! Thereís just one problem: Mitchell and his car have a slight disagreement about what type of fuel should go into the tank. . . . With warmth and sly wit, Hallie Durand follows a young child obsessed with all things automobile, while Tony Fucileís comical illustrations convey the well-tuned bond between an obliging father and a high-octane child.

Hop in for a hilarious, heartwarming ride with four-year-old Mitchell, a kid with a need for speed, a lead foot, and a very special license to drive.
