“Turtle Sparky enjoys the safety of his shell while giraffe Joe is up for any adventure. . . . Utterly charming.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)Sparky is a turtle who likes to stay inside his shell. Joe is a giraffe who likes to stretch his neck and see the world. When a car appears one day at the famous cageless zoo where they live, the two set off on the ride of their lives, with Joe behind the wheel and Sparky hanging on for dear life. From the shopping mall to the car wash to the take-out burger joint, Joe and Sparky cause mayhem everywhere they go. Young readers will love sharing the road with this unlikely pair in a string of adventures that are by turns innocent, charming, and laugh-out-loud funny.
New readers ready for the challenge of more words per page will appreciate the humor of the story and illustrations.—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
