As a girl and her father enjoy a day out in the park, she clamors onto his back for a piggyback ride and urges him to go more rapidly. In the time-honored style of many children longing for speed, she cries out, "Faster! Faster!" (unpaginated). He, in turn, puts on enough speed to represent a bunny, a horse, even a sea turtle, until he flops, exhausted on the sand, having tired himself out in an effort to please his child. The acrylic illustrations show the ever-increasing pace of the father and daugher as they race about the park. This is a sweet tribute to family relationships and the simple joy of time spent together.
