All Kinds of Cars (HB)
From Swedish illustrator Carl Johanson, this partly true, partly fictitious book is a fantastic visual collection of cars and other wacky forms of transportation. Johanson's book identifies the ordinary along with the extraordinary from fire engines and snow plows to galactic buses and guitar cars. All Kinds of Cars is a playful mix of existing and imaginary enjoyed by adults and children alike.Carl Johanson is an illustrator living and working in Bretagne, France. He studied graphic design and illustration at Konstfack in Stockholm, and has since focused mainly on illustration and, in particular, creating books for children."
By putting a fresh twist on a classic theme, Carl has created a whole new genre of picture book - the adventure-catalogues! Once read thoroughly, All Kinds of Cars will become an extension of the child's own imagination and the next time they are playing with friends the only question will be which zany form of transportation they will dream up and ride today."Headless Greg""
