William, the Vehicle King

Laura P. Newton, Author, Jackie Rogers, Illustrator, Jackie Rogers, Photographer Bradbury Press $13.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-02-768230-4
It would be hard to imagine a better representation of an hour in the life of a preschool-age boy. ""William needed a car,'' the book begins, ``a car to hold, and put in his pocket, and race along the rug.'' By the end of the book, William has found an entire fleet of vehicles in his toybox and constructed an elaborate roadway out of blocks. With big, child's-eye view illustrations and minimal text, Newton and Rogers recreate the world of a little boy's play. From beginning to end (``And when he was through, cars and trucks went everywhere with William, the Vehicle King''), the book takes the child's play as seriously as he does. Ages 4-7. (October)
