Reviews

Rated out of 5 by from Winner of a Parents' Choice Gold Award Marla Frazee has done the seemingly impossible: written and illustrated a book about a roller-coaster ride that is virtually as heart-in-mouth terrifying as the actual experience. We follow a dozen thrill seekers of all ages as they are loaded “two to a seat” and then buckled in. “Clickity Clackity.” Their train is pulled up the first coaster hill by a chain. And from that point on it’s Whoosh! Zoom! Dip and Dive with screams and yells the viewer can almost hear issuing from the twelve riders we are watching. More than the text, Frazee’s pictures capture the speed and thrill of a ride not made for sissies. It is a vicarious tour de force that children will thumb through again and again.
