Hey you, Mouse needs help! He has to catch the gorilla in the bright yellow car, let’s go! On Mouse’s instructions, readers follow the path taken by Gorilla, through brightly coloured, super-busy spreads. There he goes, through the town, round the building site, the car park and into the mountains. White arrows show us the road to take, avoiding various obstacles and road blocks – mind those sheep! At last Mouse catches up with Gorilla – why? He’d forgotten his banana! Young readers will adore this interactive adventure story. Gorilla, crouched over the wheel of his car in natty stripy sweater and hat is an irresistible quarry, while the pages are packed with exciting or comic scenes, and every type of vehicle. Great fun! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Follow That Car by Lucy Feather

Packed with comic capers and animal antics, this brilliantly bold book follows Mouse's madcap race after Gorilla through a variety of exciting settings, from navigating a busy building site, to avoiding an alpine avalanche. But is Gorilla really such a baddie after all? Not at all! Mouse is simply trying to catch him to give him his banana!

About the Author

Stephan Lomp is the illustrator of Follow that Car. Sometime during primary school he decided he wanted to be an illustrator, so Stephan started making his own comic books and painting pictures for his friends. As an adult, Stephan spent many years working for ad agencies, web agencies and event marketing companies, doing character design and editorial illustrations. Then, in 2009 his first picture book was published. Recently, Stephan has illustrated for several publishers in Germany, Spain and France. He is now working on his own stories, which he can't wait to illustrate. Stephan lives in Dusseldorf, Germany, and his website and blog can be found at www.lomp.de

Lucy Feather Lucy Feather isn’t a real person. It’s the nom-de-plume of members of the editorial staff at Nosy Crow, who often write together with a lot of good humour, tea and chocolate. If Lucy Feather did exist, she’d be married to a very supportive husband. The family would live in Bath in Somerset and Lucy would have a school-aged girl and boy. She’d have a dog, because the children want a pet, and, anyway, she has a bit of a cat allergy. She’d be a better baker than she is a cook, and would lose her temper if her children quarreled, but the storm would blow over quickly as she’d basically be very loving.
