Suddenly my car won't go!
Sputter, Sputter, Sput!
What's the matter? I don't know!
Sputter, Sputter, Sput!
Riding in the car can be lots of fun—going fast and far, uphill and downhill, zooming all over town. But suddenly—with a sputter! sputter! sput!—the car slows down and stops. What can be wrong?
Babs Bell's simple text, complete with all the sounds a car makes, combines with Bob Staake's bright, stylish illustrations to make an enjoyable ride.

PreS—"I put some gas in my car. Glug! Gurgle! Glug! It makes my car go very far. Zoom! Vroom! Zoom!" The little red car travels uphill, downhill, and through the town until "Sputter! Sputter! Sput!" its tank is empty. Apparently unfazed by the astronomical price of gas, the young driver fills up the tank and "Zoom! Vroom! Zoom!" heads right out of town. Staake's vibrant, computer-generated geometric art perfectly complements the playfulness of the simple, rhyming text. Certain to be a favorite among toddler vehicle enthusiasts, this book will be a wonderful addition to transportation-themed storytimes.—Rachel Kamin, Des Plaines Public Library, IL
