K's Car can go anywhere! Join J and K on a breathtaking adventure as they go on the ultimate road trip in the world's greatest car.

Tadpole J is ready for a lazy Saturday in Lilypad City, but his big sister, frog K, has other plans -- they're going on a road trip! K built a spectacular car that can go anywhere, so J packs them a picnic lunch and off they go! Beyond the lakeside cliffs, through the Spikey Spike Forest, and past the Domed City of Fafa. But when the road gets blocked at the Waterfall Mountains, they get stopped right in their tracks. Or do they? Because when K says her car can go anywhere, she really means anywhere!

Full-color illustrations.

School Library Journal

Gr 2-5-J, a tadpole with a penchant for baking, wants to spend his Sunday at home in Lilypad City, but his adventurous older sister, K, has other plans. She has designed a brand-new car and ropes J into a road trip, so J packs a picnic basket and tags along. They zoom out of the second story of the shop and drive far outside the reaches of the city. When they hit an impasse at Waterfall Mountain, J wants to go home, but K can build anything. The car turns into a mountain climber, a boat, and even a plane for literal flights of fancy. When the car runs out of gas, J is out of patience for his carefree sister. There's a culinary surprise in store for J, though, which makes the trip worth the while. J and K sort through some of their sibling squabbles, but there's room to explore their dynamic in future installments. A friendly stranger helps them get the craft back on the road for further adventures. Tune and Doughty have crafted a world that is both rad and colorful. The artwork is appealing, with engaging scenery and creatures. Clocking in at a breezy 80 pages and filled with snappy dialogue, this is a delightful beginner graphic novel. VERDICT This imaginative graphic novel will keep young readers turning pages to find out just where K's car can go. Highly recommended.-Gretchen Hardin
