‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Bobby's Got a Brand New Car
Age Range: Under_5
Bobby wants a car – one that goes Vroom! so he’s decided to visit a car showroom to buy himself one. After being shown various models he chooses a blue convertible and pays with his magic card, (the one that pays for everything!). He then fills the car with petrol and takes it for a spin. Soon he collects him mum and dad from work and off they speed on the open road.
Belgian author Zidrou writes comics, books and songs for children and here he has created a story that will appeal to every child who’s mad about cars and dreams of owning and driving one. Sébastien Chebret’s lovely, soft muted coloured illustrations are simple and appealing.
