Reviews

Escalating surprises [with] a high-wire climax... A natural for group storytimes, though plenty of single tots will enjoy seeing Tom's seemingly quotidian world suddenly transformed. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) This latest installment in Barton's transportation series may be the best one yet. Which is saying a lot. -- Horn Book (starred review) Brightly illustrated ... reminiscent of children's paintings in its broad lines, startling colors, and simplified shapes ... With a surprising diversion toward the circus, and a twist back to cycles at the end, this will please fans of [Barton's] previous books and young bike-lovers as well. -- Booklist (starred review) Praise for My Car: Simply wonderful. -- Booklist (starred review) With bright primary colors, simple bold shapes, and the briefest of texts, Barton introduces Tom ...[who] is a captivating and first-rate entertainer
