Review:

"'Wake up, city!' booms Burleigh in this companion to 2009's Clang! Clang! Beep! Beep! In an imaginary metropolis (where coffee is still just five cents a cup), all the vehicles — from bikes to subways — spring to life, most of them with eager smiles and bright headlight eyes. Each spread is snapshot of people happily in motion at a particular time of day, from the early morning garbage pickup to the time when late-night revelers call it quits ('Tired dancers/ slowly walking./ Subway riders/ softly talking'). Mid-afternoon finds school kids on a public bus eager to get home and hit the streets on wheels of their own: 'Step on it, Driver./ Show some speed./ Rock it. Roll it./ Take the lead./ School's out city!' reads one of Burleigh's clipped couplets. Carpenter's (Sad Santa) carefree scenes, digitally rendered and saturated in primary colors, are the very picture of urban hustle and bustle, with a jaunty look of 1960s animation. Visual sound effect cues abound in dynamic display type: 'rumble! rumble! rattle-rattle-roll!' As much fun as flooring it — and a lot safer. Ages 3 — 7." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
