Suddenly my car won't go!

Sputter, Sputter, Sput!

What's the matter? I don't know!

Sputter, Sputter, Sput!

Riding in the car can be lots of fun—going fast and far, uphill and downhill, zooming all over town. But suddenly—with a sputter! sputter! sput!—the car slows down and stops. What can be wrong?

Babs Bell's simple text, complete with all the sounds a car makes, combines with Bob Staake's bright, stylish illustrations to make an enjoyable ride.
