Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Doesn't every child fantasize about driving and being independent? Riding in a car is a big adventure—going faster and faster, uphill and downhill, zooming past all of the houses in town, seeing new sights, visiting interesting places, and experiencing new things. But suddenly the car stops running and makes a sputter, sputter, sput sound. What has happened? Will the car ever run again? Or will our hero have to continue without a ticket to ride? Once the main character puts more gas into his car, he soars off on a whirlwind adventure, taking young readers along with him for the ride. Bob Staake's illustrations add a wonderful touch to this fun and entertaining book, which combines a simple storyline with onomatopoeia. Children and parents will enjoy Sputter, Sputter, Sput! because of its simple text and vibrant illustrations that zoom off the page. This book is highly recommended for preschool readers. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
School Library Journal

PreS

"I put some gas in my car. Glug! Gurgle! Glug! It makes my car go very far. Zoom! Vroom! Zoom!" The little red car travels uphill, downhill, and through the town until "Sputter! Sputter! Sput!" its tank is empty. Apparently unfazed by the astronomical price of gas, the young driver fills up the tank and "Zoom! Vroom! Zoom!" heads right out of town. Staake's vibrant, computer-generated geometric art perfectly complements the playfulness of the simple, rhyming text. Certain to be a favorite among toddler vehicle enthusiasts, this book will be a wonderful addition to transportation-themed storytimes.-Rachel Kamin, Des Plaines Public Library, IL

Kirkus Reviews
In a tale for tots with topical overtones, an enthusiastic young driver in a toylike red auto goes Zoom! Vroom! Zoom! up and down over winding roads through town and country-until (see title) the trip ends abruptly: "The other cars around me pass. / I think my car is out of gas." A quick fill-up later-from pumps that offer a choice of "Pricey" or "Extra-Pricey"-the little car is good to go, chugging off "right out of town." Staake's stylized illustrations feature bright colors and big, simple, eye-catching geometric shapes, pushing the minimal narrative into the back seat, but armchair motorists will have no trouble following the car as it tootles along a big black road that snakes across the spreads. Outsized round heads with perfectly round eyes and tiny mouths convey a remarkable range of expressions as the car stops and goes. Chris Demarest's My Little Red Car (1992) makes a natural continuation for the joyride. (Picture book. 3-5)
