The Lovereading4Kids comment

One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | If you love vehicles, then this is the book for you! William Bee shows off a multitude of amazing vehicles, starting with the steam engine, then trains, a hovercraft, the vertical-take-off-jump-jet, submarines and finally – of course – the space rocket. Pages are busy with super-bright graphics yet clearly laid out, one vehicle per spread, in a lovely large format. There’s lots to see on each page – the machines of course, but also there are logos, signs, directions to read and fun extras – friendly traffic cones, William’s dog, even a little rabbit. Useful lines of text accompany each illustration. ~ Andrea Reece
