If I Built A CarBook - 2005
If I built a car, it'd be totally new!
Here are a few of the things that I'd do. . . .
Young Jack is giving an eye-opening tour of the car he'd like to build. There's a snack bar, a pool, and even a robot named Robert to act as chauffeur. With Jack's soaring imagination in the driver's seat, we're deep-sea diving one minute and flying high above traffic the next in this whimsical, tantalizing take on the car of the future. Illustrations packed with witty detail, bright colors, and chrome recall the fabulous fifties and an era of classic American automobiles. Infectious rhythm and clever invention make this wonderful read-aloud a launch pad for imaginative fun.

Jack describes the kind of car he would build--one with amazing accessories and with the capability of traveling on land, in the air, and on and under the sea.
When young Jack decides to build the car of his dreams using his imagination and creativity, the result is a one-of-a-kind, futuristic machine that can travel by air or underwater while providing every possible comfort for its passengers, including a pool and fully stocked snack bar.
