    PreS. "Red light, stop. Green light, go. Cars and trucks drive to and fro." Once again, Suen offers a winning picture book that uses minimal, rhyming language to convey the rhythms of speed and motion. Wilson-Max adds a story in his bold, jellybean-colored acrylic paintings that show a boy playing with an elaborate model highway system, the tracks propped on books, the lanes demarcated with pencils, helicopters and vehicles moving through town. In a few scenes, shown right at street level, it's easy to forget that the lines of urban traffic are only make-believe. As in Peter Sis'Fire Truck (1998) and Dinosaur (2000), this bright, action-filled book beautifully captures the fluid borders between the real and imagined in children's play.
