How do monsters get where they’re going? In a silly showcase of vehicles, Daisy Hirst offers a fresh spin on a favorite toddler subject.
There’s more than one way for a little monster to travel! Skeeter speeds by on a scooter, and Willa likes to walk. Beatrice and Bobby take the bus, and there goes Rodney riding a rabbit! Kieran has high hopes of getting there by kite, and then there’s Catya, being carried by a cat. Every vehicle-loving toddler who likes a good giggle—and what toddler doesn’t?—will come running for Daisy Hirst’s charming and colorful ode to things that go.
