Stella Blackstone has written many bestselling titles for Barefoot Books, including the popular Bear and Cleo series, An Island in the Sun (1-84148-197-4) and Secret Seahorse (1-84148-876-3). Stella lives with her family in Somerset. Max Grover lives in Port Townsend, Washington, USA with his wife. As a painting teacher and public speaker, he shares his secrets of finding the extraordinary in the ordinary with both children and adults. This is Max's first project with Barefoot Books.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1–This simple concept book pairs colorful acrylics with lively rhyming text to explore different modes of transportation. Each spread illustrates a wish to pilot, drive, row, ride, etc., with flat yet appealing images of youngsters operating the vehicles. Adults will appreciate the Beatles tribute, I wish I were the captain/of a yellow submarine, and children will recognize and enjoy images of a cyclist whizzing down the lane, an astronaut hurtling into space, a horseback-riding cowboy, and a speedy race car driver. However, a hot-air balloon and a coach and four may be beyond the experience of the intended audience. End notes include a brief history for each means of travel. More functional than inspirational, but child-friendly.–Piper L. Nyman, formerly at Fairfield Civic Center Library, CA
