Cars and Trucks and Things that Go

When I was a kid, the thing that attracted me to the Richard Scarry books was the plethora of different vehicles that appeared in his various works. Cars and Trucks and Things that Go collects them all together in a sort of rambling rolling 'story'. Just about everthing with wheels is included. Fire engines, ambulances, even a rather cool Pickle Tanker (you did know that pickles were transported in huge tankers didn't you? That were shaped exactly like giant pickles? Of course you did!)

Charlotte's best bit: The toothbrush / Toothpaste cars

Daddy's favourite bit: Spotting how many vehicles had 'faces' on
