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 A sheer delight to read aloud ... The unusual illustrations with their bold striking colours are full of quirky details both children and adults will enjoy - look closely and you will find all sorts of fun. I love the gulls hitching a ride with the groovy surfers! Unusual and engaging - a super book Parents in Touch

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
