Ben’s free-wheeling rhyming tale tells the story of Uncle Ivan’s extended family and their favourite modes of transport – including everything from unicycles to bi-plans and taxi cabs.

Nostalgic 50s style illustrations by Sanders puts this dynamic picture book on the shelf with Seuss and Bob Sasek’s popular classics. But it’s the 3D paper craft activity hidden in the back that will keep junior well amused after storytime is over.

Illustrations by Ben Sanders.

    Pedal tractor from 1960ish which had just been restored and painted in its original colours is my nephews favourite mode of transport!!!

    I’ve got an almost three year old whose favourite form of transport would have to be an “elloplane” as he calls it, followed closely by a “helicotter”!
