Gogo's Car Breaks Down



Gogo's Car Breaks Down 
Anne Rockwell ~ Doubleday, 1978

I always buy an old Anne Rockwell book when I see one. Her lines are so simple and easy, it's hard to not like them. Still active today, she's been publishing books for children since her first, Paul  and Arthur Search for the Egg,  in 1964. This one's about a clown who decides to take a drive home to see his mother, and runs into car trouble along the way.



"Now my little car will not go up this steep hill, and I will not get home to my mother. It is getting dark, and I am cold and hungry. Oh, how I wish I had stayed at the circus, for that is where I belong."




The clown. Ha. One of those funny things in life that you either love or hate.
