All Kinds of Cars by Carl Johanson

At a time when the world feels a bit incomprehensible, I bring you a book that is an unadulterated, colourful, whimsical confection. Galactic bus, dinosaur car, cake car — you name it and Swedish Illustrator, Carl Johanson, has dreamed it up in All Kinds of Cars. It’s a catalogue of vehicles real and surreal, a mix of education and pure silliness. That’s it.

The vehicle that won our hearts was this one (obvs). Which is your favourite?


**Note: Thank you to Pickled Pepper Books in Crouch End for their limitless stock of absolute crackers. SO worth a trip.

    I was glad to see the jungle car and the crystal car was interesting! I think I enjoy your reviews as much as the books!
