Faster! Faster!

By Leslie Patricelli
Illustrated by Leslie Patricelli

Hang on tight for more comic joy in this companion to the Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor winner Higher! Higher!

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? Must his feet even touch the ground? Leslie Patricelli reprises the duo from 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.

  • This follow-up to Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor winner Higher! Higher! is immediately reminiscent of that bestseller, but fresh and original at the same time.
  • Features an amusing array of animals in motion, each one swifter than the one before.
  • As in the first book, this is a celebration of imaginative play, and of the bond between father and child.

About the author

Leslie Patricelli is the author-illustrator of Higher! Higher! as well as nine board books starring her beloved bald baby character, most recently Tubby and Potty. “While racing home from the post office, my daughter Tatum was riding on my back yelling ‘faster Mommy, faster!.’ ” she says. “Our imaginations took off, and the sequel to Higher! Higher! was born.” Leslie Patricelli lives in Ketchum, Idaho, with her husband, their three children, a slow fat cat, a quick kitten, and two bunnies that can outrun them all.
