Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K-Children watch a red car as it follows a red bus through busy city streets, until the road is filled with other colorful vehicles. The bus meanderers past townsfolk, street life, cities, and countryside as basic text describes it being followed by red and yellow cars, yellow and orange vans, a blue truck, and, lastly, blue and red bikes. When a second red bus enters the streets, the whole sequence begins again. Collages of torn and textured paper offer bold and colorful illustrations, yet contain the smallest details, such as raindrops and facial gestures. Similarities, differences, repetitiveness, and sequencing are all nicely tied together to aid in the teaching of these concepts to the youngest learners.-Janet Weber, Tigard Public Library, ORα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Steggall is on the go again! Her latest vehicle-related picture book uses minimal text (“yellow van, yellow car, red car, red bus”) to introduce colors and patterns. The real tale is hidden in the details of her remarkable torn-paper illustrations. As a mother and her son race to catch the next bus, the child drops his teddy bear. Although they arrive at the bus stop just as the bus is pulling away, a kind driver has retrieved the bear and returns it to the boy. As the bus continues through a decidedly English town, there are also people reading newspapers, chatting on cell phones, sweeping streets, and buying ice cream, and readers can’t help but imagine the stories behind these individuals. Much like Frank Viva’s Along a Long Road (2011), the artwork and text come full circle as the bus returns to its first stop and a teenager rushes to catch it, losing his hat in the process. Designed with a massively long horizontal trim size, kids will have to turn their heads left and right to take it all in. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Angela Leeper

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.

My three year old loves this book. It is a very good book about teaching logic relations aka red bus, red car. My son can "read" it himself and it is perfect for a preschooler.
