Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Meet Annie, a little girl in white pajamas and a helmet. She hops into her race car and drives out her second-floor bedroom window for an evening adventure. Her journey takes her by flat farm fields, along a curvy mountain road, through a hot desert and a cool forest, across a wide river, and into a city, where she enters a racetrack, drives fast, and leaves her competition in the dust. Arriving back home, she zooms upstairs to her bedroom, where she climbs into bed for a family read-aloud session. The simple, straightforward text immediately draws viewers into Annie's fantasy. Her journey is as real to her as her race car. Gleaming when the evening begins, it looks scuffed and mud-spattered at the end. The artwork has wit, a Sendakian sensibility, dynamic line work, and a strong structural quality. Children will enjoy the many intriguing details, from the bedroom scene where hubcaps and road signs decorate the walls to the forest picture with its backseat-rider's view of Annie, animals among the trees, and reflections in the rearview mirrors. A captivating picture book for the many young children who are fascinated by cars and driven by the need for speed.--Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this high-octane adventure, the hero does just as she pleases and makes it back in time for bed. One evening, Annie fits her helmet over her mass of red curls with a big smile on her face, gets into her race car-a sleek, torpedo-shaped unit that sits low to the ground-and rockets right out of her open bedroom window, the car leaving a stream of exhaust over the backyard. "It was a fine evening for a drive," the narrator continues, with delicious understatement, as Annie and her car blast across an impossibly expansive vista of plowed fields, and great mountains loom on the horizon. She hurtles on through magnificent stretches of geography-scaling peaks, sailing through red rock formations, zooming through forests and along city streets-before overtaking a surprised field of competitors on a race course and heading home. McClintock's crisp, clean landscape spreads have the precision of architectural drawings, and her economically told story offers all the greatest charms of adventure: being on one's own, seeing new places, and going really, really fast. It's a richly gratifying fantasy. Ages 4-7. (July) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
