PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS BOOKS BY RUTH WIELOCKX: "Wielockx's detailed paintings will intrigue mechanically inclined readers while generating a just-competitive-enough sense of fun." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY on I WON "Young readers will love the vast array of vehicles: a jeep, a quad bike (!), a cool bus covered with flower paintings. I love the design of this book: the vibrant illustrations pop off the page, the name of each new vehicle is in bold letters, and each spread has a solid, bright backdrop. Those familiar with my blog know that I love surprise endings, and this title has a great one. How are these pint-sized characters driving fire trucks and planes? All is revealed on a charming, surprising final spread." - MR. BRIAN'S PICTURE BOOK BLOG on I WON "On your mark, get set, go!... A fun, colorful book, with a lively pace, tone, and, topping it all off, a meaningful message." - School Library Journal on I WON
