Bobby's Got a Brand New Car

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Sébastien Chebret. In this wish-fulfillment fantasy, young Bobby buys a car (with "his magic card...that pays for everything"), picks his parents up from work, and drives home really fast ("Dad feels a bit unwell in the back. Mom asks Bobby to slow down"). The matter-of-fact text and stylish illustrations never break with the story's absurd premise, which should have lots of kid-appeal.
