About this title


Stella's bike is faster than little Roy's, so she thinks she can climb trees, count turtles, feed a horse, and still win their race around the park, but Roy's perseverance pays off in a tale illustrated in hand-tinted linocuts.

From Publishers Weekly:

In the park one Sunday, Stella challenges her younger brother to a race around the lake. Given that she is riding a big-wheel trike while Roy's toddler-style four-wheeler is pushed rather than peddled ("It was built for coasting," the narrator explains), Stella's victory seems certain. But the curious girl is distracted by several natural displays, among them an assembly of turtles, gulls and a frog; a group of fish in a pool below a waterfall; a gaggle of friendly geese; and a policewoman's horse. Roy wins the race, but he shares his prize--a box of popcorn--with his sister. Far more impressive than Wolff's ( A Year of Birds ; Come with Me ) pleasant though somewhat thin plot line are her polished linoleum block prints, hand-tinted with watercolor. Featuring the fresh, earthy colors of spring, these distinctive illustrations convey both the motion of the children and the still beauty of the park. Ages 2-5.
