Overview
Vehicles, vehicles, vehicles--nearly 100 of them--in all shapes and sizes A giant crane hovers over a construction site, a space ship roars into space. . . . Supersized spreads feature marvelously detailed illustrations that just beg to be pored over again and again. Best of all, lots of flaps, popups, pull-tabs, and rotating wheels bring the various vehicles to life. Readers will poke into a ship's hold, explore the innards of a garbage truck, and help demolish a house. Any child who's ever been intrigued by the roar of an engine will adore this extraordinary collection of things on the go, from the everyday to the nearly outrageous--yes, there's even a pooper-scooper scooter

The French team of Baumann and Balicevic use flaps, wheels, pop-ups, and pivoting brads to showcase dozens of vehicles on land, at sea, in the air, and even off the planet. Cheerful, brightly colored cartoon men and women are seen hard at work throughout: an excavator’s moving arm demolishes a house, a cement mixer “pours” concrete (via a wheel), a flap reveals the workings of a combine, and a firefighter’s ladder ascends for a rescue. Title aside, few vehicles are nation-specific—a “pooper-scooper scooter” belongs to France, Senegalese and Indonesian fishing boats appear, and Russia’s Soyuz rocket lifts off in a pop-up—but there’s plenty on display to satisfy the vehicle-obsessed. Ages 4–9. (Mar.)
