Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The secrets to The Great Stroller Adventure by Denis Markell, illus. by Melissa Iwai, hide behind full-page flaps in this clever rhyming title. Around town, kids crankily refuse to get in their strollers. But their relatives know better: " `It's not a stroller,' Grandpa says./ `See? It's... a rocket ship!' " Readers can uncover the "true" nature of each stroller with the flip of a flap, and soon none of the kids wants to leave his stroller, even to play in the park. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
The title of this lift-the-flap book is a bit confusing. It seems to refer to a single adventure when, in fact, what is illustrated on the double-page spreads, each of which has a page-size fold-out flap, are different children, their caregivers and their strollers. The premise of the book is adults trying to convince children to get back into their strollers before moving along. The suggestions include such things as pretending the stroller is a fire engine or a racecar, an airplane or submarine, a rocket ship or a roller coaster. Upon arriving at the seventh page, it is time to get out of the stroller and play in the park. On the final spread more suggestions are made for persuading kids to get back into their strollers; such as flying in a "helicopter soaring up into the blue," riding a dinosaur or sailing as a pirate on the seven seas. The text is in rhyme that flows without a hitch, very easy to read and probably easy for a youngster to remember. 2004, Scholastic, Ages 2 to 5.
—Eleanor Heldrich
School Library Journal
PreS-Mom, Dad, and other caregivers tackle the universal problem of creatively manipulating their toddlers back into their strollers by using a bit of imagination. Each spread shows a realistic location-the library, the toy store, the grocery store, the pet shop, the post office-while vibrantly colored foldout pages magically transform each child's stroller into something more exciting and appealing than the place he or she is about to leave. Derek's dad informs his son, "It's not a stroller-. It's- A Fire Truck," while Emmy's mom promises, "It's- A Racing Car." The adults' pained expressions prior to their brainstorm range from nonchalance to exasperation, while each child's expression is pricelessly realistic. The foldout illustrations show each youngster in a large-as-life vehicle-a fighter jet, a submarine, even a rocket ship-wearing a huge smile. The simple, rhyming text and eye-catching pictures make this book a good choice for sharing aloud.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
