How do motors work? When does a car celebrate a wedding? Where do cars go slowly and where do they go fast? Can you share a car with other people? This book takes children on a road trip through the fascinating world of vehicles – from the small city car to the family van. Using flaps, they can assemble a car from its individual parts, trigger an airbag or drive into the parking garage. In addition, the book presents alternatives to cars and a responsible attitude towards mobility.

About the Series

The WWW series stands out for its playful, enticing way of conveying just the information that kids want to know. Centered on who-what-how questions, the titles in the series explore subjects of great interest to young children. The thousands of questions children ask daily are answered by means of interactive elements, engaging illustrations, and age-appropriate texts. Because the lively illustrations convey so much, the books hold children's interest even without an adult to read the clear, friendly texts. WWW is ideally suited for preschool and kindergarten ages, for children 4 to 7 years old.

The Author

Andrea Erne was born in 1958 in Stuttgart, Germany. She studied German, politics and cultural studies and began her career as an editor for a daily newspaper. She then moved to a large children's book publisher, and later began working freelance as an editor and author for book publishers and newspapers.

The Illustrator

Markus Humbach was born in 1969. From childhood, painting has been an essential part of his life. He studied visual communication (graphic design) with a focus on illustration at the Münster School of Design. He lives in Osnabrück with his wife and daughter and has been working freelance for well-known publishers, museums and advertising agencies since 1996. His naturalistic drawings reflect his intentional gaze and great dedication as well as the childlike curiosity he’s never lost. For his work, he received a scholarship from the Aldegrever-Gesellschaft to study at Edvard Munch’s studio in Oslo.
