Hop in! Neon-bright illustrations depict a delightfully single-minded little driver sure to have readers clamoring to come along for the ride.
"Another day, another drive . . ." So declares Miles, preschooler and car enthusiast. He puts on his seatbelt. Check. He cranks the key. Check. Uh-oh, the horn is broken, but no time to fix it, because—"gotta go!"—Miles is off to school, zigging and zagging past sister’s trike and brother’s truck. The trip is adventurous indeed, with the neighborhood dog to greet, puddles to navigate, even roads to cross (with Mom close at hand, of course). Jamie Harper’s adorable, energetic illustrations and wonderfully childlike sensibility will appeal to every busy little kid who loves things that go.
JAMIE HARPER is the author-illustrator of ME TOO! and DON'T GROWN-UPS EVER HAVE FUN? Of MISS MINGO AND THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, she says, "I like that this book is a blend of fiction and nonfiction, and that Miss Mingo is a funky, fun, contemporary teacher who just loves learning new things."
