Reviews

"Concise, pedal-powered prose for the earliest of independent readers."--Kirkus Reviews

"A mixed-media landscape reflects movement from road to road. Pencil, watercolors, and ink enhance digital scenes that flow from one driver to the next, while cartoon representatives of both flora and fauna drive their favorite vehicles. A simple repetitive refrain, 'I like my..., ' reinforces the text, while images allow readers to search for details, like finding the bike rider and other recognizable characters who meet at a parkside birthday party. . . . A suggested general purchase for guided reading, the visual variety of images urges readers to infer changes in text." --School Library Journal

" The bare-bones text consists of each driver appreciating their specific vehicle ('I like my truck' says a cactus driving a flowery transport), while loosely rendered mixed-media art fills in the story line. . . . Ferrari wryly drives home his tale's message in a visually telling finale revealing the vexed car, truck, and bus drivers snarled in traffic while the girl, in satisfyingly timely fashion, pedals to her festive destination foreshadowed by visual clues readers glean along the way."--Publishers Weekly
