About the Author

 


Praise For Cars Galore

Few present day illustrators convey energy with more goofy retro zeal than Bob Staake, and he puts his skill to full use in Cars Galore, a madcap paean to the improbable possibilities of the automobile. The combination of Mr Staake’s off kilter drawings and Peter Stein’s zippy, faintly Seussian rhymes is likely to please.
—Wall Street Journal

Like a revved up hybrid of Richard Scarry’s Cars and Trucks From A to Z and P D Eastman’s Go Dog Go, this book for those obsessed with all things automotive will also make them laugh. The rhyming text is upbeat and offbeat.
