"The U.S. Children's Poet Laureate and an award-winning children's poet join their prolific forces in this picture book of poems about cars.  But they're not just any cars: there's the 'Sloppy-Floppy-Nonstop-Jalopy' ('So unique there is no copy'); the Bathtub Limosine ('With hot water heating / And porcelain seating'); and the 'High Heel Car.'  Each of the thirteen quirky, inventive poems will speak directly to the imaginations of children, as will Holmes's high-concept, detail-filled illustrations."
