KIRKUS REVIEW

A photo-survey, with a short paragraph to a page per car, purportedly written by a ten year-old model buff but with no attempt to deviate from the usual slick, written-for-kids style. Beginning with AnyCar I, or ForChevAmChrysVagen, made from 22 other cars, Walker wheels along to the coke machine car (""Have you ever tried to buy a coke from a moving coke machine?""), the phone booth car (""for people who can't get all their phone calls finished at home""), the bath tub car (""Have you ever thought what it would be like to take a bath while going 150 mph?"" -- actually, no), a ""really jazzy"" one with Bob Hope's nose (""With all that, why would you want to play golf?""), a fur-covered one (""This is the type the Eskimos should use. Isn't it fur out?""), and even some historical cars including those of Hitler and recent U.S. presidents. Yes, it's very likely the craziest yet, for what that's worth.
