Wheels are busy. On banana carts, they’re pushed; on dog wagons, they’re pulled. On bikes they’re pedaled forward; on tow trucks, towed backward! "Wheels work, and wheels play. / That’s what WHEELS do all day!" The rhyming text is written in both English and Spanish in this dynamic board book, each language clearly differentiated with color. Laroche’s extraordinary three-dimensional paper-relief artwork makes every colorful scenario pop, whether the wheels are spinning, whirring, racing, or rolling.

Giles Laroche, a master of cut-paper relief sculptures, captures stories from history that can't be told with photographs. Reviewers have called his art "truly masterful," "mind-bogglingly good," and "a visual feast." He lives in Salem, MA.  

Praise For…

"A short rhyming text in very large type provides the framework for Laroche's impressive bas-relief cut-paper collages. . . . Best of all, the wide, single-scene spreads create their own staccato rhythm, with wheels of all sizes punctuating the pages like beats of a drum." --Horn Book, starred Horn Book, Starred

"This handsome, large-format picture book points out common uses of wheels in a short, rhyming text, brightly illustrated with distinctive collage illustrations. . . . A simply written, well-illustrated picture book." —Booklist Booklist, ALA

"The striking collage art consists of paper cutouts that have been layered to provide dimension and enhanced by drawing and painting. . . . A fun choice for storytime."–SLJ School Library Journal —
