All Kinds of Cars
by Carl Johanson
Age Range: 6-8
All Kinds of Cars is a sort of car encyclopaedia with all manner of transportation from the serious to the wacky. There are so many cars to look at. A vehicular extravaganza, an amazing assortment of the weird and crazy. Readers can have lots of fun spotting food-related cars – Marmalade car, Doughnut car, Chewing Gum car and Ice cream. Then there’s a Dinosaur car, an obese car, Worm car, Galactic bus or cloud transport, and a Sock car. As well as the fantastical there are also more conventional vehicles including fire engines, tractors, trucks and buses.
Illustrator Carl Johanson guides you through the world of transport in this beautifully designed book and it will be up to the reader to determine fantasy from reality! There is a lot of painstaking detail in each vignette to accurately reflect every vehicle. All Kinds of Cars is bound to appeal to all car-mad children, (possibly adults too!) and provide hours of entertainment.
