A hilariously illustrated counting book featuring the world of dogs and cars.
Massie and Walker deliver a stylish primer on letters, numbers, dogs, and cars through a series of vehicles that become increasingly packed with canines.Publishers Weekly A fun counting book for dog lovers.  Children enamored of dogs will enjoy the illustrations of the well-known and more exotic dog breeds.Youth Services Book Review Massie and Walker have created the ultimate counting book, Dogs in Cars. Different dog breeds (in varying amounts) ride around in stylish cars. The book would be a beautiful addition to a library or nursery. The illustrations are gorgeous and text and illustration are littered with tongue-in-cheek humor. For instance, the Dalmatians are "trying to get back" and they are riding in a Delorian. Not only does the book promote counting, but it also is a bit of a look-and-find with questions at the end, asking the reader to go back and find different color cars, dogs wearing glasses, and more. Definitely recommend this one and most by Flying Eye books. Two thumbs WAY up.Andrea Scherer, East Grand Forks Campbell Library The kids are going to love learning about the different breeds of dogs.Allison Dollar A hilarious counting book (1-25, and then 50, 100) featuring all sorts of dogs in different vehicles. The illustrations are bold and gorgeous, and I love how this book not only helps kids practice counting, but also builds and expands their vocabulary by exposing them to the names of some obscure dog breeds.April Lee, Ela Area Public Library/ Praise for the author's previous book, Beautiful BirdsBeautiful Birds is an elegant and unpatronising alphabet of birds. The language is sophisticated [...] but children and parents will breeze through the book because the rhymes have momentum and the illustrations have poise and wit and the colours are entrancing.The Guardian From albatross to zos-ter-o-pi-dae, the images in this slightly oversized import consistently stun with their composition and use of color.  readers eyes glide over the luscious pages. The image of a nightingale, framed in an open, circular window beneath a crescent moon, is alone worth the purchase price. With pages that beg to be sliced out and framed, a positive feast for the eyes.Kirkus Reviews The spreads are as opulent as a peacock s tail, and they ll send many back for long second looks.Publishers Weekly Most kids-and adults-will enjoy flipping through the vivid, beautiful pages, each of which would look at home framed on a wall.Booklist Walker s illustrations deserve repeated viewings and can serve as a starting point for art and design projects for students in elementary school and above.School Library Journal"
