Traffic Pups

Submitted by Ms. Jill!
Traffic Pups by Michelle Meadows, illustrated by Dan Andreasen. When last we saw these intrepid stuffed dogs from Pilot Pups¸ they were flying high in the sky in their planes and helicopters. Now they’re back, and this time they’re patrolling the busy roads on motorcycles. The Traffic Pups have their work cut out for them: chasing down speeding mice and frogs and a red-light-running goose, and rescuing a teddy bear from a crash. Next they lead a parade, and finally race home to their police station (the toybox) just in the nick of time to avoid discovery by the boy whose toy vehicles they’ve borrowed. Michelle Meadows’s bouncy rhymes add to the fun of the pups’ motorcycle adventure, and Dan Andreasen’s whimsical illustrations capture the action and excitement perfectly. Young readers will love the silly details and toy-sized perspective as the tiny pups race around the playroom floor: a discarded book becomes a ramp for jumping, blocks become a cityscape, and furniture legs are giant obstacles.  If you like dogs, vehicles, or fun and zippy stories, check out Traffic Pups today!
