Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–Vehicles and more vehicles are what readers see as they follow a British family driving in city traffic, through the roadworks, past grazing cows, and finally to the sea. Along the way, they are introduced to a plethora of prepositions (e.g., up, down, around, into, under, across). The vibrant collage artwork is bursting with color: bold hues in the bustling city, serene shades and textures in the country, and the soothing colors of the seaside. Observant youngsters will notice that the steering wheels are on the right side of the cars instead of the left and that the license plates look different. Large type and few words per page encourage youngsters to explore and pore over the details. Children will be engaged whether being read to, or tackling this offering on their own.–Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL

More About the Author


I studied Graphic Design at Bath College of Higher Education before becoming a primary school teacher and teaching infants for several years. I then left work to have my two boys. When they were very young, they became so fascinated with cars, boats and trains that I began making pictures of the vehicles that they loved so much - stitching them onto their bedcovers, printing them onto their walls and eventually, developing ideas for picture books.

All of these books are now illustrated using collages made from many different manufactured and handmade papers - and sometimes other oddments that I find!

In March 2011, I was highly commended by the judges of the Booktrust's Best New Illustrators Award.

Format: Hardcover
Simple text, bright illustrations and vehicle after vehicle make up this perfect book for those toddlers who are also fanatics of moving machines. Follow the little red car as it carries the family through the city to its final destination by the sea. Characters, both drivers and pedestrians, line these pages to help children understand up, over, around, and STOP, along with other phrases used to describe motion.

Format: Hardcover
One of those rare books that are simple enough for a beginner ELL yet not babyish. Beginners can become familiar with prepositions. They can retell the sequence of events. A good book all around for teaching ELLs.
