“Your feet can walk and run and skip. But are they best for every trip?” It’s a transportation celebration in the latest offering from Saxton Freymann, who here turns everyday fruits and vegetables into plane, train, and automobile, not to mention scooter, skateboard, ski, sailboat, ocean liner, hot air balloon, wheelchair, and more. Freymann’s hilarious tableaus not only feature many modes of getting about but passengers as well, from the impatient green onion checking his watch at the train station (next to a mushroom couple’s tender farewell) to the wide-eyed radish faces of the children aboard the summer squash school bus. (Ages 4–9)
