Praise for Everything Goes: In the Air:“For young fans of things with wings, another oversized visual riot from the creator of Everything Goes: On Land (2011)…Required reading for both plane-iacs and any first-time flier.”
Praise for Everything Goes: On Land: “Biggs has a cheery cartooning style that’s reminiscent of R. Crumb and ideal for populating his oversized pages with a multitude of players and detail .... Biggs gives readers lots to take in and enjoy.”
“In a visual feast for fans of wheeled vehicles large and small, Biggs presents a series of high-density street scenes done in an amiably rumpled cartoon style. A glory ride for young car, truck, train, bus and trolley devotees.”
“Fun and learning are ideally balanced in this engaging trek that will be revisited umpteen times before every tidbit of labeling, conversation, and oddity is discovered in this wealth of urban wheels.”
