" This is perfect for any car/vehicle obsessed child (or adult). With pages and pages of the most imaginative cars ever, interspersed with thematic collections of actual vehicles (At the airport, hospital, construction site, in the city etc.) " Michael Earp said.
" This book is brightly illustrated and lots of fun. The pages alternate between pictures of actual vehicles and those made purely to be amusing, such as the poo car, the ridiculous car, and the glove car. There is no actual story, just pictures of different vehicles with their names underneath, so a child could easily enjoy looking at it alone or with another child. I laughed through the book, and I can imagine a kiddo will do the same. " Kim said.
"Do It Yourself
What's more fun to draw than cars? Pretty much anything with wheel-like things attached counts as a car, and there's no way to do it wrong. That's the lesson, encouragement and message here.
The pages alternate between drawings of real, (real-ish), vehicles and totally imaginary vehicles. There's a wider range of realistic vehicles than usual, (lots of farm equipment, interesting specialty construction vehicles, and so on), and the goofy imaginary cars are totally goofy.
So, if you're a kid with a few crayons and some blank paper this book says "go for it". The sillier the better. And if you're going for realism, well there are some manageable lessons to be learned about color and drafting. All in all, colorful fun.

" I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. This is a very cute and whimsical book. It is full of illustrations of cars, both real and imaginary. Lots of fun for kids and adults too! " Jessica said.
" A very unusual transportation book. " Mary Librarian said.
"This was a fun book about imaginary and real cars! I love the art. Though I wish the backgrounds could have more colour, now it felt like a picture that was unfinished. :(
Yes, I know various sites say this one doesn't come out until 2017, but believe me I got this one from Amazon and it is available at their site. It isn't the first time a book has a wrong release date, but apparently no one cares to update it on the big sites like Amazon.
I knew I had to have this one, I already spotted some pictures up at Twitter, and so I was very eager to get this one. At first I was sad that it would take until 2017 to come out, but then apparently it got out already. I was delighted, yay, I could read it!
And I have to say the book was really fun, the cars are imaginary and also real. Of course it was quite easy to spot the imaginary cars (Stressed cars, poo cars, broken cars, guitar cars) since they had funny names and/or looked funny and not natural. :P
There are also real cars and those are generally put together by category (for instance at the airport or mining).
I loved how the cars were designed (both real and imaginary), however I do have to withdraw half a star for the backgrounds. There were backgrounds but they just felt like someone forgot to colour them in, it was like a giant colouring page. It was just such a shame as it really had potential to be a wonderful scene.
Still I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. It is a fun trip through cars and I really enjoyed myself.
