Hate the round headed, bug eyed protagonist--this is the "cool" variety of artwork that isn't my cup of tea. But that is not going to stop the "vroom vroom" set of toddler/preschooler boys from adoring this. I bought 2 copies and expect they will get loved-to-death in short order.
I like the language, sounds and rhythm of this book. The bright colors are appealing. The fact that the child appears to be a Cyclops--I know, I know, it's a profile, but why is the eye in the middle of the head?--is a little disturbing. Will be good for storytimes.

Good toddler/preschool book that includes rhyming. The main character has fun driving his car until suddenly sputter, sputter, sput, his car stops! The reason isn't very surprising but the illustrations and the rhyming make this book fun to share.
Owen loves this one and even tries to drive his cars on the pages. The words are simple, example: "Up, down" and "Sputter, sputter, sput" Loved it!! Great for any car-obsessed three year-old little boy.
My 4-year-old liked this book. It doesn't have a lot of words and he could read most of it without help. The illustrations are cute.

Used for my Noisy storytime. Great colorful illustrations and fun rhymes. Good example of phonological awareness.
Good for storytime. I like the book. I don't really care for the ending. Seems a little out of place.
A nice choice for baby storytimes, with fun rhyming words and opportunities for interactive voicing.
Cute. Illustrations are very vibrant. Social commentary on current gas prices?!?!

For car fans of all ages, an endearing book about how to get around.;)
This is a fun sound effects book! It's good for a transportation theme too!
A sweet simple story to use in a preschool transportation story time.
Preschoolers loved this book. I paired it with My Car by Barton.
"cars, simple story with repetitious sounds, shape illustrations"
cute book cute character good opportunity for up and down
Used for Things That Go baby storytime December 2008.
Cute story of a little car that runs out of gas.
Decent car book, but nothing special.
Cars need gas to go.
