A whimsical board book with plenty of action for car-loving toddlers features dreamlike images of city streets at night. Neon-colored illustrations, composed of painted futuristic cars and collage assemblages using vintage cars, show animal drivers zooming down city streets until a fender bender requires a team of tow trucks to take them to the repair shop. The brief narrative is filled with playful rhymes and onomatopoeia, as well as the toddlers' mantra: green light, go! Red light, stop! (Ages 1-3)
