The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Car, Car, Truck, Jeep
Car, car, truck, jeep, have you any fuel? Yes sir, yes sir, three tanks full.
Putting a new slant on an old favourite, this colourful rhyming journey along the road to the seaside is sung to the tune of Baa, Baa, Black Sheep and showcases vehicles and transport of all kinds. Who’d have thought going out in the car for the day could be so much fun!
With its fun cast of vrooming, beeping characters, this rhythmic, rhyming story is sure to be an instant hit with very young children, as well as with toddlers and preschoolers, who will enjoy spotting new and familiar vehicles and animals. At the end of the book, all the vehicles park up for the night and drift off to sleep, so it ticks all the boxes for a brilliant bedtime story, too.
Including everything from dumper trucks and trains to hovercraft and motorbikes, this cheery picture book is enriched by Nick Sharratt’s trademark illustrations in bold primary colours.
