Night Cars

by Teddy Jam
illustrated by Eric Beddows
edition:Hardcover
also available: Paperback

Winner of the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Award

It is late at night in the city. From his father's shoulder, a sleepless baby watches the snow drift down from the sky onto the busy street below. What are all those noises? What are all those lights? His tired but patient father explains everything, from the bustle of taxis swishing through the slush to the grinding and slamming of the early-morning garbage trucks.

Teddy Jam’s lyrical prose and Eric Beddows’s detailed illustrations cast Night Cars
