The Lovereading4Kids comment

An exuberantly noisy books for all those who love a racket and anything that moves! A racing car, a school bus, a Rolls Royce with a Duke and Duchess aboard – all of these and more get stuck in a giant traffic jam. And all of them make a lot of different noises! Have fun finding out what has got them in such a jam!


And the Cars Go... by William Bee

A rollicking read-aloud from the exceptional talent of William Bee! Well well, what do we have here? It's a HUGE, very NOISY traffic jam and everyone's in a hurry to get somewhere! The racing car, off to the track, goes vrooooom; the beach buggy, on its way to the coast, goes bumble bumble; and Mr Luiggi cries Mamma Mia! My ice creams are melting! What ever could be the cause of all this traffic?

Graphic and contemporary, this is an utterly charming chronicle of passengers and their cars! It is the companion title to And the Train Goes... and together they make a perfect set.

See if you can spot hidden snails on every spread!


Traffic jams have never looked as good Junior
