Fireball Tim's Big Book of Whacky Rides is AMAZING!!! 5 Jan. 2013
By E. Lawrence - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Fireball Tim's BIG BOOK of WACKY RIDES is brilliant, funny and inventive! Fireball Tim's vivid and unique illustrations, relating a different subject and story on every oversized page, are unlike any I have ever seen before. My 3-year-old daughter loves books and can't get enough of BIG BOOK of WACKY RIDES, reading it multiple times before bed, fascinated and amused by every colorful and outrageous drawing as if they are a fun game! My daughter particularly LOVES the "THE SCREAMINATOR!" and "FLYING FREDDY'S TIME JUMPER!" She not only loves the silly rats and frogs that drive the out-of-this-world cars, but also the hilarious descriptions! She just got over a cold and couldn't stop laughing at "THE SNOT ROCKET" and its goofy red ant drivers! If it's Fireball Tim's desire to change how kids and adults read and enjoy children's books, then job well done!!! We are convinced that our daughter's love for mac 'n cheese comes from her love of the "MAC'S CHEESEY DRAGSTER!" We are so fortunate to have found this amazing new book. It's so awesome! You and your kids will love every page!!!!

Good Old Car Fun, a la Roth, Deal, and a slice of Rube Goldberg 10 Feb. 2013
By Joe Kelly, Jr. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've had the pleasure to meet Tim at a few shows, and to see his good-natured car mania translated to an actual book - never mind one for children - has me smiling. My kid's a car kid, and she thought it was a riot. So do I. It's a great book for sharing at bedtime (or whenever), and the art, printing, binding, and sturdiness of the thing should keep it around for a long, long time. My favorite part, as a parent, was the added questions/suggestions after each of the illustrations, meant to get the kids interested and involved... kinda what reading is supposed to be all about. So many people are condemning the car as the root of all evil, or worse, forgetting what an important part of our lives these machines are. Finally, a fun read that just might get younger kids thinking about wheels again. Nice work, Fireball. Keep 'em coming.

What a terrific book!
It's a witty and fun exploration of all the things we have probably thought about, wondered about or fantasized about during our youth.
Buy one for your kids and watch the wonder unfold.

Young Skyline Readers 17 Sept. 2013
By Topangawriter - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Fireball Tim rocks the block! My sleepy street has an abundance of kids playing, riding their bikes, drawing crazy chalk scribbles on the blacktop. For fun, I bought a copy of Fireball Tim's Big Book of Wacky Rides! and plopped it down in front of two boys. You would have thought I had gained entry into a secret world. They are tearing this book up! Who would have thought the two words, Grab and Share could go together. The imaginative layout and Krazy Kar world nails it for these Kool Kids. The colored chalk markings in the street now include their own collection of wacky stuff. They love the book. Now I rock, too!

Not only is the art brilliant for pure art's sake,
but look deeper and you'll find inspiration for
all of us,regardless of age, to look beyond
the expected and explore new ideas.This book
should and I imagine,will be,made into a movie.
So great!!!
