That car by Cate Kennedy

cover image

Allen & Unwin, 2014. ISBN 9781743310953.
(Ages: 4-6) Highly recommended. Ellie, Luke and Joey find an old car at the farm their family has moved to. The car becomes the base for a multitude of imaginative adventures, taking them to tea with the Queen, a trek up Mount Everest and on an African safari. When they meet the original owner of the car they enjoy hearing about her real-life adventures.
The beautiful illustrations perfectly complement this lovely, gentle story, highlighting the imagination of children growing up in rural Australia.
