Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This paperback picture book features fresh, quirky poems by two picture-book poetry veterans which explore practically every kid's favorite topic: CARS! <br> <br> The U.S. Children's Poet Laureate and an award-winning children's poet join their prolific forces in this picture book of poems about cars. But they're not just any cars: there's the "Sloppy-Floppy-Nonstop-Jalopy" ("So unique there is no copy"); the Bathtub Limosine ("With hot water heating / And porcelain seating"); and the "High Heel Car." Each of the thirteen quirky, inventive poems will speak directly to the imaginations of children, as will Holmes's high-concept, detail-filled illustrations.

Horn Book Review

Why should cars be limited to steel and glass? These two dozen short poems offer vehicle lovers delightful automobile alternatives with distinct advantages: e.g., the paper car ("if it breaks down, don't frown, just...quickly shred it") or the hot-dog car ("you just can't beat it. / And when you're done / You simply eat it"). Holmes's subdued-palette, retro illustrations extend the humor. (c) Copyright 2014. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
