About this product
- DescriptionThe U.S. Children's Poet Laureate and an award-winning children's poet join their prolific forces in this picture book of poems about cars. But they're t just <i>any</i> cars: there's the Sloppy-Floppy-Nonstop-Jalopy ( So unique there is copy ); the Bathtub Limosine ( With hot water heating / And porcelain seating ); and the High Heel Car. Each of the thirteen quirky, inventive poems will speak directly to the imaginations of children, as will Holmes's high-concept, detail-filled illustrations.
