This book brought back fond memories of roller coaster rides as a kid. Neat illustrations, too! ( )

This book is so wonderful. I've read it with a number of groups and it is a great starter for some writing lessons. ( )

This is a book about a young boy riding a roller coaster for the first time. He is very nervous waiting in line. He builds confidence and enjoys his first ride.

I loved the art in this book. Each person, and there are many, has a different expression on their face. Some look excited to ride the roller coaster and others look scared or nervous. I loved how the little girl, the main character, is anxious and scared to ride, and by the end she can't wait to get back in line to ride again.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0152057447, Paperback)

All sorts of people ride roller coasters, people over a certain height that is. Marla Frazee zooms in on one pony-tailed girl who has never experienced a roller coaster before, ever, in this start-to-finish ride. The anticipation builds much like it does in real-life: "S-l-o-w-l-y the train is pulled up the hill by a chain. Clickity, clackity. Clickity, clackity. Up. Up. Up. And then..." As the train zips and zooms and dips and dives, the pony-tailed girl in the very front seat loves every minute, or almost. In the end, "Most of these people are dizzy./ Some of them have wobbly knees./ But at least one of them is planning/ to ride the roller coaster again." Frazee's crisply detailed watercolor drawings of waiting people, happy people, terrified people, and dizzy people are fun to peruse. Youngsters who are Disneyland-bound (or who would just like to be) may be the best audience for this minute-by-minute replay of a roller-coaster ride. (Ages 4 to 7) --Karin Snelson
