9780374320003: Tin Lizzie

“Happy Birthday, Tin Lizzie! Let’s go!” shouts Grandpa as his one-hundred-year-old car explodes into life. The children jump aboard the vintage Model T Ford that they have helped him to restore, and a celebration road trip begins. “You gotta have wheels!” Grandpa cries. But as traffic jams build, the children begin to ask serious questions about cars and the problems that have developed: overcrowded roads, pollution, and oil-dependency.

Animated illustrations and jaunty prose combine history and a thought-provoking look at the motor-obsessed world of today. Endpapers depict the evolution of cars from the late nineteenth century to the present, and the book concludes with a brief pictorial biography of Henry Ford, followed by a spread of images illustrating problems and possible solutions.

About the Author:

ALLAN DRUMMOND earned an M.A. in illustration at the Royal College of Art. His other books for children include Liberty!, which appeared on Fanfare, The Horn Book’s Honor List, and was a Kirkus Reviews Editor’s Choice. He lives in Savannah, Georgia, where he is chair of the illustration department at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3—With fluid pen-and-wash artwork and lively text, the author/illustrator of Liberty! (2002) and The Flyers (2003, both Farrar) celebrates the centenary of the Model T Ford. Opening endpapers depict this old-timer along with a multitude of cars beloved throughout the 20th century. As the story begins, narrator Eliza enumerates her grandfather's talent with anything wheeled, from prams to skateboards, as well as his cherished long-term project, fixing up a Model T. Several years, and three more grandchildren later, the job is finally done, and Grandpa packs the kids aboard Tin Lizzie for a road trip. As they encounter escalating traffic and the resulting pollution, the family launches into an ecologically sensitive discussion of alternatives to current transportation. The kids brainstorm solutions, encouraging readers to consider their own ideas. Drummond's spirited illustrations neatly depict vehicles both old and new, presenting a colorful fleet of cars, buses, RVs, and trucks. An afterword presents an illustrated capsule biography of Henry Ford and reiterates the author's points. The closing endpapers get serious with bubbles highlighting automobile-related problems (including traffic deaths) and possible solutions. This book makes a useful introduction for environmental units, as well as fun browsing fare for young car enthusiasts. For Model T fans, pair it with Peter Spier's title of the same name (Doubleday, 1975).—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA
