KIRKUS REVIEW

 In the new Harper Growing Tree series (see Cummings, above), a Go Dogs, Go! for the '90s. Hurd (Art Dog, 1996, etc.) piles dogs into cars, and allows them to drive through the neon-washed streets of the city: ``Big cars, little cars, be-bop, ka-ZOOM!'' The canines honk, bop, and race until a smash-up temporarily puts them out of commission. A little tinkering in the repair shop fixes up their vehicles as good as new. This stylish, jazzy cruise is depicted in illustrations that are part cartoon, part paste-up, where vintage cars and more futuristic models have streaks of colored light and gleaming chrome to tantalize young eyes. The melange of colors and collage practically guarantees a joy ride. (Board book. 1-4)
