Out and About with Mitchell and Dad

By Hallie Durand
Illustrated by Tony Fucile

He may be only four years old, but Mitchell is going places (with a little help from his dad)! This kid-friendly combo includes both Mitchell Goes Driving and Mitchell Goes Bowling in one enticing bind-up.

A rambunctious child who loves crashing into things, driving a car to bed, eating chocolate-chip cookies, and doing a steamin’-hot-potato dance, Mitchell isn’t slowing down for anyone. And now readers don’t have to, either. Follow this energetic four-year-old and his obliging father as they make a pit stop at the cookie jar for car fuel (Mitchell Goes Driving) and head to the lanes to earn a big X on the scoreboard, if they can only avoid the gutter (Mitchell Goes Bowling). With humor and charm, Hallie Durand and Tony Fucile imagine a young child, his dad, and their various shenanigans in a two-in-one bind-up edition sure to capture the hearts of readers.

  • Artist Tony Fucille's artwork bursts on the page with comic energy — sure to appease young, active readers
  • These high-energy stories featuring an endearing and funny father-son relationship make for a perfect Father's Day read
  • This two-books-in-one Sparks paperback is just right for emerging readers
