Summary
Battle on! Head to the lanes for another hilarious, high-energy story as four-year-old Mitchell and his obliging dad strike a winning deal.

Mitchell liked to knock things down.
That's just how he rolled.

One Saturday, when Mitchell almost knocks down his dad, his dad catches him and puts him in the car. And when they step into the bowling alley, Mitchell feels right at home. Pizza! Giant crashing noises! Special shoes! But as Mitchell picks up the biggest ball and quickly learns the word gutter, and when Dad does a little kick with his leg and earns a big X on the scoreboard, Mitchell starts to get peevish. How can Mitchell get a chance to do a steamin'-hot-potato-dance too? With wit, warmth, and comedic charm, Hallie Durand and Tony Fucile roll another strike with this tale of a lovably rambunctious child and his doting dad.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Fresh off of Mitchell Goes Driving (2013), our curly-headed four-year-old hero gets a break from knocking stuff over at home to knocking over pins, courtesy of his understanding pop. It's enough to make any young reader want to hit the lanes: There were lots of brightly colored balls, a good pizza smell, and giant crashing noises. Indeed, Durand gets a lot of mileage on just how darn unusual bowling is, what with the scoring computer, ball-return system, and blowing machine. Unfortunately, Mitchell dwells in Gutter City, while his dad depicted in a great, three-panel side view has perfect form and, to add insult, does a steamin'-hot-potato dance to celebrate. Set within illustrations that take advantage of multiple extreme angles, Fucile's scraggly characters have a contagious manic energy, with Mitchell occasionally breaking into Looney Tunes-style running-in-place. All ends well, of course, with father and son joining together to bowl a perfect SSSSSTTTTTRRRRRIIIIIKKKKKE! --Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Mitchell's License (2011), Mitchell pretended his father was a car, racing him (rather ignominiously) around the house. Dad gets his revenge in this sequel when he takes his son to the bowling alley and throws strike after strike. Mitchell knocks down a few pins, but not without difficulty. "That's when the people next door asked for a new lane," Durand deadpans as Fucile shows Mitchell sprawled on a neighboring lane. Just when Mitchell is ready to give up, his father finds a solution that works for both of them. Mitchell's energy remains second to none. Ages 3-7. Agent: Pippin Properties. (Sept.)
