The Princess and the Pit Stop Reviews
A different story that the title suggests. Pit stops means something else to me when traveling with children but the story brings in all the fairy tale characters to a car race. The princess will not give up the race even when her team feels the race is lost. She has perseverance and attitude and is fun for children who want a story about car races and recognize the characters from fairy tales along the way.
Beautiful big, colorful illustrations of the racers in the other race cars.
Don't forget to peek under the dust jacket! You jump right into the action with this funny and colorful take on a princess racing nursery/fairy tale characters. Great take on never giving up; even when the odds are totally against you. Strong action verbs, combined with Santat's flair for illustration make this a brilliant read.
This was a great book! It is a fractured fairytale. I loved that it touched on a crazy number of traditional fairytales. It would be interesting to read this story and then challenge the children to research some of the fairytales that are covered.
The best part (besides the classic Santat illustrations) are the verbs Angleberger uses as the Princess leaves all the fairytale characters in the dust.
Who says race cars are for boys? The princess puts the petal to the metal in this colorful, fast-paced, comedic race to the finish line. The Princess and the Pit Stop features myriad characters from well-known fairy tales like the wolf & the three little pigs ("She blew the doors off the Big Bad Wolf and smoke the Three Little Pigs") and the gingerbread man ("She CAN catch me!").
The use of the different fairy tale characters is clever, but overall it is Vanellope of Wreck it Ralph with every "twisted fairy tale pun" possible. Clever illustrations and great colors help this book to be a more fun read.
Cute book about fairy tales
Santat's illustrations are bright and colorful to support the story line. The princess learns she's in last place in the final lap of the race when she makes her pit stop. She could have given up but decided to show determination and try to win the race. She passes all of the other fairy tale characters in the race and does win.
The story line was weaker than I expected.
