Description

"Tailor-made for the very young. An absolute delight." -- School Library Journal A day at the park. A ride on Daddy's back. Run, Daddy! Faster! Faster! How fast can Daddy go? Faster than a dog? A horse? How about a cheetah? Leslie Patricelli reprises the duo from Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor winner Higher! Higher! in another humorous riff on a favorite pastime -- a laugh-out-loud-funny tale of few words about doting dads and high-energy kids whose imaginations know no bounds.

Review quote

Small children will be positively delighted.
--The New York Times Once again, Patricelli successfully channels a preschooler's nimble imagination. The book's playful design, featuring hand-lettered text and richly colored cartoonlike acrylics, speaks directly to its young audience. Slow down and share this one with your little speedsters.
--The Horn Book The boldly colored, uncluttered pictures with minimal backgrounds are perfect for preschoolers, and the repetitive text is tailor-made for the very young. An absolute delight.
--School Library Journal Gradually drawing back from fantasy to reality, the book's ending will amuse parents as much as children. Bold, black lines define the simple forms in these colorful acrylic paintings. A satisfying sequel to a well-loved picture book.
--Booklist Online The exuberant duo from HIGHER! HIGHER! (2009) is back in Patricelli's latest, this time imagining all the animals dad could be as his daughter rides on his back...Another imaginative delight...what will this duo dream up next?
--Kirkus Reviews In FASTER! FASTER!, the thrill-seeking heroine from Leslie Patricelli's HIGHER! HIGHER! takes an imaginative joy ride... The book's playful design and richly colored cartoonlike acrylics speak directly to its young audience.
--Horn Book online With minimal words and bold illustrations, Patricelli captures the joy kids experience playing with their dads.
