Fruits and vegetables leap off the plate and off the page in Saxton Freymann's fast-paced tribute to things that GO!

When you see piles of veggies lying sedately around the corner store, you'd never guess all that produce really wants to go, go, GO! But Saxton Freymann did, and he's transformed those basking berries and lazy legumes into vehicles of every size and speed. Kids everywhere will thrill over the array of transportation methods on display, from enormous rockets and grand ocean liners to the simplest mechanism of all: your feet. And as always, Freymann's clever vegetable sculptures delight the eye and tickle the funny bone. Hurry up and grab some FAST FOOD!

I have loved Saxton Freymann's veggie art for a long time and I still can't get enough of it! The illustrations in this book are clever and cute; there's nothing like seeing veggies driving veggie cars! This books work well in a Letter V story time as well as a food or vehicle theme. While maybe not the most exciting text in the world, it does rhyme and allows for group participation. The pictures are definitely the star here and all ages will find them engaging.

The pictures are great. My kids love it and so do I. And it peaks their interest in veggies! What more could I ask?
