When Danny and Mum are stuck in a traffic jam in the bus on their way home, it's time for Danny's magical skills to come into play. He brings out his special driver's hat and gets behind the wheel. His route takes them on an adventurous journey through mountains, deserts and the sea...until at last they get back to town where the traffic has started moving. This is a fantasy journey through all kinds of environments with hilarious illustrations that offer plenty of talking points.

Reviews

The illustrations are simple, colourful and cleverly drawn, with added humour on each page ... The characters in the story represent people of different ethnic backgrounds, allowing all readers to feel that bit more involved ... A lovely story book - ideal for whole-class discussions Child Education Every small boy's favourite fantasy brought to life with bright, rather frenzied cartoon-style illustrations by Paul Cemmick Bournemouth Daily Echo 20090807
