Description of this Book

Little Etta Elephant always loves visiting her aunt. Aunt Ellen lives in a very special place. Welcome to Cycle City! Tonight's the Starlight Parade, but the invitations haven't been sent out yet! Luckily, Mayor Snail is on the job. And maybe Etta can lend a hand? Detail-rich and thoroughly delightful, Cycle City takes readers on a seek-and-find tour of an irresistibly charming town, where everyone-from owls on bookmobiles to pigs on pedicabs-is on wheels!
