About the Author
Jen Arena has written over 50 books for kids. When she's not writing, editing, or hanging out at her local bookstore, you might find her driving around Tampa, Florida with the windows down.
Mike Dutton is a children's book illustrator, former Google doodler, and current art director at Tonko House animation studio. When not illustrating, he enjoys going on adventures with his family in a truck camper, which is named Holly Joliday, a spoonerism from their favorite film, Mary Poppins. Holly is over 20 years old, and in the seven years they've owned her, she has only had to visit the garage twice. The camper itself is exactly like Mary Poppins' carpetbag: It somehow fits everything—kitchen, bedroom, mini library, and all four family members at bedtime. When not on the road, they all reside in Berkeley, California.
“This rhyming interactive board book is perfect for little vehicle lovers. The story takes place in a green garage where mechanics (including a female mechanic, which I appreciate) work on a red car and a camper truck. Sliding doors, flaps, and spinning wheels keep little hands busy, and these interactive elements are surprisingly sturdy. It’s a lot of fun to read with toddlers and preschoolers.” - Book Riot
