Poem-mobiles / by J. Patrick Lewis and Douglas Florian / published by Schwartz and Wade / 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 nd porcelain seating"); and the "High Heel Car." Each of the thirteen quirky, inventive poems will speak directly to the imaginations of children, as will Jeremy Holmes's high-concept, detail-filled auto-illustrations.
