Go-Go Guys

Chronicle. Sept. 2023. 48p. Tr $15.99. ISBN 9781797205717.
Gr 1-2–Three mischievous, rambunctious, and utterly outrageous little ones lay in bed and declare that they are the “Go-Go Guys” with Go-Go and that they never sleep. They aren’t interested in counting sheep and would rather race around in cars or even UFOs; since this isn’t possible from their bedroom, they need to escape. Fortunately, a huge wrecking ball (driven by the sheep they aren’t interested in counting) comes crashing down on their home and sends them into outer space. The Go-Go guys are elated! They end up on the moon and drive around on various and colorful contraptions. All is wonderful until the moon itself commands them to stop and orders them to blast back to bed. The Go-Go guys return home but promise that next time they are going to Mars. A zany sense of humor permeates this book, giving the cast wonderful energy and spirit. The panel format offers a comic-book vibe that will appeal to young readers. The rhyming text, sound effects, and delightful illustrations make this a shoe-in for a high-octane story hour.
VERDICT Highly recommended for purchase.
