Princess and the Pit Stop Book Signing with Dan Santat and Tom Angelberger
Girl power meets horsepower in this high-speed adventure!
A plucky Princess races against a gaggle of fairy-tale and nursery greats in The Princess and the Pit Stop, an epic car race of a book.
Too bad Princess is in last place with one lap to go. She’ll have to catch the Gingerbread Man, lose Little Bo Peep and her Sheep, blow the doors off the Big Bad Wolf, and much more. Her Fairy Godmother tells her to just give up. Instead, this Princess hits the gas!
This turbo-charged read-aloud puts a princess—not up in a tower or awaiting a kiss—but at the center of the thrilling action, and gives each of her opponents a silly, perfect comeuppance.

Sophronia Angelina Temminnick spends her days running around on adventures in her family’s Victorian country home in a very un-ladylike manner. So to prepare her to enter society as she becomes a young woman, her family enrolls her into Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. But the school isn’t what Sophronia expects… firstly, it’s not in any sort of building but a giant, floating dirigible! Although she and her new classmates do learn dance, dress, and etiquette, she soon realizes that the school is also an academy to use feminine guiles for more sinister aims like espionage, manipulation, and even assassination! Sophronia’s lessons at Mademoiselle Geraldine’s include learning how to poison with proper tea service and the ins and outs of the aristocracy from a Vampire. With the author’s dry humor and wit, this series both celebrates and satirizes the steam punk world. An exciting, saucy, and hilarious read! - Linnea
