From the publisher: One Saturday, when Mitchell almost knocks down his dad, his dad catches him and puts him in the car. And when they step into the bowling alley, Mitchell feels right at home. Pizza! Giant crashing noises! Special shoes! But as Mitchell picks up the biggest ball and quickly learns the word gutter, and when Dad does a little kick with his leg and earns a big X on the scoreboard, Mitchell starts to get peevish. How can Mitchell get a chance to do a steamin’-hot-potato-dance too? With wit, warmth, and comedic charm, Hallie Durand and Tony Fucile roll another strike with this tale of a lovably rambunctious child and his doting dad.
Sometimes, you might do all of the above, and still be losing. And that’s frustrating. So frustrating that you might want to go home. But it’s here that Mitchell learns something else.
Sometimes, (asking for) a little help goes a long way.
After reading Mitchell Goes Bowling, I was so bowled over (HA!) by Mitchell’s spirit, that I wanted you to meet him for yourselves. So I asked him for a little interview, in which he answered a few questions in true Mitchell fashion:
Hi Mitchell! My 4yo daughter has never been bowling, but I bet she’d love it! What was the best part for you?
Knocking stuff down. And we winned.
Sometimes my daughter gets frustrated when things don’t quite go her way. Has that ever happened to you?
Ummm. Not that I “can” remember.
I think your dad sounds like a pretty special guy. Besides bowling, what else does he teach you?
To bring my mom her coffee. And I can’t invite myself to somebody’s house. They have to invite me.
I hear you also have a license! I’m impressed! Tell us about your “car”. 😉
My car runned out of gas and put me in bed.
Any other adventures you’d like to have with your dad?
Wrestling for real, not for joking. Catching crickets for my leopard geckos. And doing a cannon ball. And I want to go to Austria and see a koala.
And in case you’re not already sold, how about an exclusive peek at some book art?
How can you not fall in love with this guy? We feel as if we’ve made a new friend at our house.
