" This whimsical and yet informative picturebook depicts ALL types of cars from banana cars to train cars to rocket cars to front loaders. " Jamie Bernard said.
" Interesting book. Illustrations are fun and very unique. Would have liked a little more information for the vehicles though. " Pam said.
" 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.

" A very unusual transportation book. " Mary Librarian said.
" 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.
"This book is very creative and interesting. The book would be very appealing to lower elementary age children as it is silly and wacky, but has a good amount of vehicles that they can see in their everyday lives. The interesting thing about this book is that it has no full sentence text, but just text beneath the vehicle stating what it is called.
I would use this book as a lesson on fiction and non-fiction, with an activity of drawing their own cars at the end; where they can state if the car would be in the fiction or non-fiction category. I think that would be a fun way to explore the concept. " Alexandria Duell said.
