Mitchell just doesn?t want to go to bed, so Dad suggests one last game as a compromise: Mitchell, pretending his father is a car, can take his dad for one last joyride around the house, and then pull in to bed. Delightful illustrations of Mitchell perfectly reflect his simultaneous joy and determination in operating this dadmobible, and clever Dad in his plaid pajama pants somehow knows just when to take over steering.

Awesome pictures that capture the emotions of the boy and his dad. my boy laughs when we read this together.

Mitchell doesn't want to go to bed, so his dad pretends to be a car that Mitchell has to drive. He even issues Mitchell a licence. This leads to longer and longer bed times as Mitchell drives Dad all over the house.

A very cute story with whimsically illustrations. Lovely representation of the relationship between fathers and sons.
