Jack, the little yellow taxi, used to be the fastest, brightest taxi around and traveled the city as if he had wings. If only he could fly. But something magical happens when Jack sees a bus that says, “Come to Brazil.” Before Jack knows it, he’s flying over the Brazilian rainforest and his new customers are macaws and howler monkeys! Jack couldn’t be happier, playing pass-the-coconut. But their fun comes to a halt when big bulldozers and cranky cranes start chopping down the rainforest. Why don’t you come back to the city and leave the forest alone? With a blink of an eye, Jack is back in the city. Could those be the same bulldozers he saw in the rainforest? Jack isn’t sure until he spies a coconut on the park bench and smiles to himself...anything is still possible.

About the Author:

Marcus Pfister is the author of the phenomenally successful Rainbow Fish series, as well as many other books for children. He has worked as a graphic artist, a sculptor, a painter, and a photographer as well as a children's book creator. Pfister lives with his family in Berne, Switzerland.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 1-Once the fastest little yellow taxi in town, Jack, who now has older, slower wheels, is sent airborne as he literally flies off a city bridge in response to a travel poster-"Come to Brazil!"-landing in a tropical forest surrounded by colorful parrots and howler monkeys. Jack is a fun-loving, coconut-ball player and immediately hits it off with his newfound simian friends. A chameleon playfully imitates the cab with his own checkered and yellow form, but powerful giant excavators frighten the animals and dwarf Jack, hiding in the deep blues and greens of the rainforest. Pfister's watery, painted impression of the trees and brightly blocked contrasting yellows of the construction behemoths direct readers' eyes from cityscape to forest-and back again-as Jack suggests a city cab's alternative to "tearing up the forest." While support for the environment comes across loud and clear, images of Jack's digging-equipment acquaintances lack the personality or warmth of his tropical animal friends.
