From the author of Big Red Lollipop comes a vibrant picture book about a boy who joins his father on a rollicking rickshaw delivery. Richard Scarry fans will delight in this joyful read-aloud with a message of sharing and respect.

Ibraheem and his cat, Mitu, join Baba on a rickshaw trip through the big city, where vehicles of all sorts and sizes have their own language to help them navigate the busy streets. 

BEEP BEEP, says Baba.
HONK HONK, says car.
TOOT TOOT, says bus.
RUMBLE RUMBLE, says mighty truck.

MEOW MEOW, says Mitu
WHEEE! I say.

Along the way, Ibraheem notices that though there aren't traffic signals, the cars, buses, trucks, rickshaws (and even a stray toad!), all navigate the hustle and bustle of the streets safely by communicating in their own language.

With its poetic text and bright, friendly art, Ibraheem's adventure comes alive with the exciting sounds, movement and personality of the drivers and vehicles that share the road.

Includes an author's note about her experiences with big city traffic around the world.
