Moovin' On! Animobiles: Animals on the MOOve by Maddie Frost

How does a LION travel in style?

Does his ride go VROOM! when he wants to ZOOM?

Is a ROAR in store?

Is it a LeoLimo? A LionLimo?

Racing over grassy fields
A tiger-train is on a track.
Families look out the window
As the wheels go clickety-clack!

Do monkeys prefer mopeds? Does a parrot hop a plane? Do salmon esteem submarines when they tire of swimming up those streams?

On open country roads
Cow-cars MOOOve in any weather.
They stop and go for grass,
And always stick together.

There are many options for critter transportation in Maddie Frost's Animobiles: Animals on the Mooove (Sourcebooks/Jabberwocky, 2018), with a mixture of familiar animals and vehicles to choose from. With emphasis on rhymes and alliteration for a bit of wordplay along the way, the illustrations are jolly, as befits bears in buses and bats in hot air balloons, while author-artist Frost works in various vehicles with assorted animal names as the critters stay on the go, here and there and to and fro for a bit of fun on the run.
