    "A short rhyming text in very large type provides the framework for Laroche's impressive bas-relief cut-paper collages. . . . Best of all, the wide, single-scene spreads create their own staccato rhythm, with wheels of all sizes punctuating the pages like beats of a drum." --Horn Book, starred Horn Book, Starred

    "This handsome, large-format picture book points out common uses of wheels in a short, rhyming text, brightly illustrated with distinctive collage illustrations. . . . A simply written, well-illustrated picture book." —Booklist Booklist, ALA

    "The striking collage art consists of paper cutouts that have been layered to provide dimension and enhanced by drawing and painting. . . . A fun choice for storytime."–SLJ School Library Journal
