Cars Galore

By Peter Stein
Illustrated by Bob Staake

"This book for those obsessed with all things automotive will also make them laugh. The rhyming text is upbeat and offbeat." — New York Times

Ready to hit the road? Gear up for a nonstop parade of shapes, sizes, sounds, and even smells in a wild array of cars packed with big personalities, awesome features, and eccentric passengers. Driven by Peter Stein’s bouncing verse, Bob Staake’s artwork merges vibrant color and crisp, dynamic design with humor, warmth, and whimsy. This rousing excursion is sure to thrill all kids who love things that go, as well as fans of the illustrator’s signature style.

  • Fantastically energetic read-aloud about a perennially popular subject
  • Vehicle mania starts early! The jaunty language and rhythm used to explore a perenially popular subject is a no-brainer for the toddler set.
  • Whimisical, retro illustrations are bright, clean, graphic -- sure to catch the eye of a young vehicularophile!
