One August night, cake-bake hot, Carmela can’t get to sleep. So she and Daddy get into their car for a little drive. Vroomaloom zoom vrroom vrroom! They take a fantasy ride past farms (cackle lackle), through woods (whoo whoo), to the sea (splash dash wave crash). “Are you ready for sleep?” asks Daddy. “Not yet. Keep driving,” says Carmela. So on they go by swamps, over streams, around waterfalls, forward, backward, sideways, and around in circles. Finally, Carmela’s eyes close. She must be ready to sleep. “Not yet, Daddy. Keep driving.” Vroomaloom zoomaloom vrroom vrroom. With its inventive use of language and irresistible refrain, this send-up of a familiar family problem will tickle the fancies of parents and children.
