Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A big yellow Checker cab is the star of this nifty lift-the-flap and pull-the-tab book. Wilson-Max's (Little Red Plane) bright, color-saturated spreads are so cheerful, one can almost hear the birds chirping. The view from the steering wheel puts the reader in the driver's seat, but first the oil must be checked with a tiny paper dipstick, and the gas tank filled using a nozzle attached to the pump with yarn hose. Windows "roll" down, an antenna goes up, seatbelts fasten (including those on a child's car seat). The meter receipt, showing a fare of $52.86 for a half-hour ride, might make some passengers blanch, but most will agree that the trip was worth every penny. Ages 3-6. (Feb.)

You're in the driver's seat! Check the oil. Fill the gas tank. Fasten your seat belt. Drive your passengers through the countryside and over the bridge. Check the fare. Take your taxi through the car wash to get it clean, bright, and ready for another busy day. Young readers will certainly delight in this totally interactive book with its lift-up flaps and sturdy pull-tabs found on every page. The illustrations are bold and bright. Also available: Little Red Plane, Little Green Tow Truck, Big Blue Engine, and Big Red Fire Truck.
