Eleanor Taylor lives in Dorset where she works on her children's books. This is her fifth book for Bloomsbury. Eleanor is also published by Gullane Children's Books. As a sideline Eleanor undertakes decorating commissions and she was recently hired to paint the walls of the Armani Exhibition held in London's Royal Academy. Eleanor was selected for the BP Portrait Award in 1998.From School Library Journal:
PreS-A family of scruffy brown dogs sets out in a red convertible packed full of beach paraphernalia. On the road, they encounter pigs on a tandem bicycle, mice on miniature scooters, a pickup overflowing with watermelons, an ice-cream truck, and a double-decker bus filled with animal passengers. The vehicles make a colorful-and noisy-procession, until they reach their destination and everyone settles in for a day of fun at the shore. The minimal text consists mostly of sound effects and simple descriptive phrases. There's not much story here, but the cartoon artwork, done in pastel hues, is energetic and inviting. The mostly plump, always smiling characters are endearing, and their various conveyances are drawn with enough detail to keep children looking. All of the action is set against white backdrops so the layout never becomes overwhelming. An additional purchase that might appeal to Richard Scarry fans.-Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
