Hop in! Neon-bright illustrations depict a delightfully single-minded little driver sure to have readers clamoring to come along for the ride.

"Another day, another drive . . ." So declares Miles, preschooler and car enthusiast. He puts on his seatbelt. Check. He cranks the key. Check. Uh-oh, the horn is broken, but no time to fix it, becauseó"gotta go!"óMiles is off to school, zigging and zagging past sisterís trike and brotherís truck. The trip is adventurous indeed, with the neighborhood dog to greet, puddles to navigate, even roads to cross (with Mom close at hand, of course). Jamie Harperís adorable, energetic illustrations and wonderfully childlike sensibility will appeal to every busy little kid who loves things that go.
