The Princess and the Pit Stop Reviews
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!").
Pictures were awesome; text, meh.
August 2018 - an instant favorite for Ben! He loves matching up the cars on the endpapers with the characters in the story, plus the drama of the race, and he's already memorizing phrases like "blew the doors off the Big Bad Wolf." It's making me realize that he doesn't know/remember all the nursery rhyme characters, so we might need to dip back into Mother Goose, but he knows a lot of the fairy tale characters.
This fun picture book will be great to share with kids that appreciate a good car racing story and kids who enjoy fractured fairy tales. The Princess in this story is determined to win the car race against an all-star line-up of famous fairy tale characters. Even though she's told by her fairy godmother at the pit stop that she doesn't have a chance because she's so far behind. She gives it everything she's got and I'm sure that young readers will enjoy rooting for her to win it all.
Seems cute but kind of pointless. I'm all for princesses being race car drivers, don't get me wrong, but I guess I was expecting a point, or a snappy conclusion or something, and there doesn't seem to be one.
You don't tell this princess that she is in last place and think that she's not going to do something about it! She's got what it takes to put the pedal to the metal and get the job done. A pit stop won't slow her down for long. Watch her kick it into gear for the win! Passing all of the legends on the track. Watch out Humpty Dumpty! Don't look now Rumpelstiltskin! Move over Snow White. Because this princess is determined to finish the race, not in last, but first place! She is driven to succeed ...more
It bothered me more than I'd like to admit that the announcer and the narrator seem to be competing to tell the story. Are they the same person? The narrator speaks in regular text and the announcer speaks in excited loudspeaker speech bubbles, but both (for some awkward reason) are speaking in the past tense, even though don't announcers usually commentate in the present? This really threw off the story for me.
Lovely illustrations, delightful book cover under the dust jacket, great theme of per ...more
A princess drives in a race with nursery rhyme & fairytale characters. Unfortunately, nothing actually happens.
