Reviews in Brief
“Fast-paced, zip-zapping board book that begs to be read with as much gusto as possible, preferably three or four times in a row. ’Away we go!/Old cars, new cars,/ZOOM! ZOOM! ZOOM!/Big cars,/little cars,/BE-BOP,/KA-ZOOM!“ The bright and busy illustrations are packed with energy. The edges blur a bit (since the cars are racing around so fast) and the pages are dotted with electric squiggles and jagged lines outlining the various cars. A whiz-bang choice for toddler collections.” — School Library Journal
“…a Go Dogs, Go! for the ’90s. Hurd (Art Dog, 1996, etc.) piles dogs into cars, and allows them to drive through the neon-washed streets of the city…This stylish, jazzy cruise is depicted in illustrations that are part cartoon, part paste-up, where vintage cars and more futuristic models have streaks of colored light and gleaming chrome to tantalize young eyes. The melange of colors and collage practically guarantees a joy ride.” — Kirkus Reviews
“Hands-down favorite baby book”
lvlahakis (New York, NY USA)
“This was given to us as part of a basket of books for my newborn son, who was an avid story-listener from two months on, and it was his favorite for well over a year. The bright graphics and sound effects engage even the youngest babies. My husband and I can recite it by heart, which comes in handy since both kids like to hear the words even when the book’s not around. I always include a copy of Zoom City with every “new baby” gift I send. I can’t say enough about this book.”
