Synopsis

All Kinds of Cars by Carl Johanson

From Swedish illustrator Carl Johanson, this partly true, partly fictitious book is a fantastic visual collection of cars and other wacky forms of transportation. Johanson's book identifies the ordinary along with the extraordinary - from fire engines and snow plows to galactic buses and guitar cars. All Kinds of Cars is a playful mix of existing and imaginary enjoyed by adults and children alike.

Reviews

Swedish illustrator Johanson lays out this offering in the form of a catalog, and young readers certainly won't hesitate in picking out their favorites. This whimsical collection is delightful, and provides fresh surprises at every turn. Most young audiences will finish this and immediately demand another reading. --Booklist, STARRED REVIEW It's a stylish and imaginative collection that all but guarantees kids will be reaching for art supplies as they dream up their own vehicles. --Publisher's Weekly

The simple but cleverly rendered vehicles are likely to inspire children to grab some markers and get in on the fun. Exquisite design and seductive production values make picking this book up a no-brainer. Where to put it down ? on your child's night stand or a living room coffee table ? will present the bigger problem. --The New York Times Book Review
