About the Author
Praise For Vroom!…
A Publishers Weekly 2019 Summer Read Pick!
"Satisfying . . . gorgeously illustrated . . . the tone is marvelously matter of fact about both the girl's feats of driving and her automotive passion." —The New York Times
"Writing with cadences plucked straight out of Sendak's playbook, McClintock never wastes a syllable . . . The book doesn't just put readers in Annie's shoes. It dares them to find shoes of their own and let their imaginations take the wheel. Max had his wolf suit and Llama Llama his red pajamas; Annie has her racing togs. She fits right in." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"The simple, straightforward text immediately draws viewers into Annie’s fantasy. Her journey is as real to her as her race car. The artwork has wit, a Sendakian sensibility, dynamic line work, and a strong structural quality. A captivating picture book for the many young children who are fascinated by cars and driven by the need for speed." —Booklist, starred review
