"This fun story written and illustrated by Marla Frazee, tells the story of a young girl's first ride on a roller coaster... Amy Rubinate's incredibly expressive reading reflects the hesitation the child feels at the beginning of the ride and then the sound of sheer joy as the roller coaster zooms, zips, and loops the loop! Wonderful sound effects include carnival music, the whooshing noise of a roller coaster, and the whoops and hollers of the riders... Children will be delighted."-School Library Journal

"Amy Rubinate takes ROLLER COASTER to new heights. From the very first moment of waiting in line for a ride to the height check to the decision to ride or not--even at the last minute--to the ride's bell starting ring to being pulled clickity-clackity up the hill to the glorious moment at the crest . . . Rubinate IS that rider. Her voice resonates with nervousness but then lets out squeals and giggles as the ride zooms, zips, dips, and dives. Rubinate quiets as the roller coaster slows, and she leaves a long pause as the ride ends. A background soundtrack of a roller coaster park complements the story. A.R.
