*Kids Book Review*
With a vibrant, child-friendly style and eye-catching tones, mixed with the effervescent technique of splashes and flicks – brilliantly representing a road-like and wheel-splash-like quality (plus fantastic tyre-mark tracks in the endpapers)… fans of the series will be absolutely delighted with this presentation and language experience. Offering great scope for discussion, including a graphic of the parts of a wheel in the back of the book, toddlers and pre-schoolers are sure to roll out WHEELS over and over again.
