About the Author

Leslie Patricelli is the author-illustrator of Higher! Higher! as well as eleven 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.

Editorial Reviews

Small children will be positively delighted.
-The New York Times

Once again, Patricelli successfully channels a preschooler's nimble imagination. The book's playful design, featuring hand-lettered text and richly colored cartoonlike acrylics, speaks directly to its young audience. Slow down and share this one with your little speedsters.
-The Horn Book

The boldly colored, uncluttered pictures with minimal backgrounds are perfect for preschoolers, and the repetitive text is tailor-made for the very young. An absolute delight.
-School Library Journal
