Let′s Go!

Written and illustrated by Michael Emberley
Holiday House, 2023 | HC ISBN: 9780823455096 | 40 pages

In this companion book to the Geisel award-winning I Did It!, a cute creature and five friends want to go to the party-- but it’s too far away!

Even the youngest readers will be able to follow the simple text and lively illustrations as the friends find creative solutions--building cars, skis, and boats out of the very paper they’re drawn on! 

Comics-lovers can now share the fun with their kids, students, siblings, and younger friends who are learning to read!


“Imaginative, playful, and deceptively unassuming, this comic for early readers serves as a respectful (and exceedingly entertaining) introduction to the comics format.” —The Horn Book, Starred Review

“Readers will feel a sublime joy as they follow the internal logic that supports the inspired solutions, and caregivers will love continuing the conversation as they discuss ways these ideas could work in the real world. Emberley is a master of balancing white space and color, and his skills are on fine display here. . . . Go, go, go…read this book!” —Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

Look Inside


★ “[An] unpanelled graphic story ... Pairing animated, thoughtful illustrations and simple text with a story focused on determination, this book is a perfect pick for new readers, both nervous and brave.” School Library Journal, Starred Review

★ “This title will be cherished by librarians, educators, and caregivers for its simple yet direct message but also by young readers, who will see themselves reflected in the main character. When it comes to excellent books, Emberley does it! Joyfully encouraging—just what uncertain little ones need as they make their first forays into independence.” Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“The all-dialogue text, with just a handful of words in total, is easy to read and will give new readers, too, the self-assurance finally enjoyed by our main character. Lively cartoony illustrations with plenty of white space provide humor and relatability.” The Horn Book
