KIRKUS REVIEW

 In ten vignettes on the first spread, people prepare for journeys by different kinds of transport--from skateboard, roller skates, helicopter, and plane to a bus and the family car. Cheery doggerel describes the lively characters' progress as they're glimpsed en route, in various combinations, along country roads or in a crowded city; in the end they all converge at Grandma's: it's her birthday. Not much plot here, but kids will enjoy identifying the many vehicles, plumped out like soft toys in Stott's appealing illustrations. (Picture book. 2-6)
