Caleb's Cab by Sally Chomet

From the Oscar-nominated and Bafta-award-winning creators of animated films Belleville Rendez Vous and The Illusionist comes a hilarious, dark-edged comedy caper full of twists and surprises. Caleb's dad has vanished and only his abandoned taxi cab provides the clue to his last movements. But can Caleb solve the mystery of his missing dad before the greedy Money Mongers snatch him up - just like they did his best friend Myra? In a crazy world of eccentric characters and villainous greed, Caleb must put his foot down and drive for the truth! Sylvain and Sally Chomet bring their unique and cinematic art and storytelling to their first ever original children's book.
