Review: 4 out of 5 stars

Cindy’s dad’s car has been in a bit of a bingle so it’s off to the body shop to get repaired.

The Wizards of the Body Shop was fun and imaginative, the kids were excited about the wizard and who would be fixing the car so the mystery kept them flipping through the pages.

Mr. Thomasma’s detailed writing flows well and the simple illustrations keep things entertaining and the kids curious.

Here at WebbWeaver, we are HUGE fans of Eric B. Thomasma and his children's books. Some people just have a knack for entertaining children (which isn't always easy), Eric is one of those writers. With a warm, special way of dealing with some everyday, but unusual goings on, Thomasma's love of writing as well as his love for children shines through every, single syllable.

These little books are wonderful and, there isn't one that has come from this author that my children didn't adore!

Eric and Lanin Thomasma create a very different story that I wasn’t quite sure would be interesting enough for kids to hold. I mean, it’s about a car going to get repaired, and the people that do the repair, how can that be of wide spread interest to children?

The more I read, the more I understood exactly what he was trying to do. With the use of bright, simple and colorful illustrations, he was able to visualize each person, as their

I received this book for free from Goodreads.

It has a great premise, especially for children of anyone in the automotive business or anyone preparing to visit a shop with kids. I also think it would make a good addition to the waiting room of one of these shops.

The illustrations are wonderful. Clean, bright, colorful - children will love them.

I think there's a disconnect, though, between the intended audience and the language used. The context, illustrations, and delivery seem to be intended for
