HOLLYWOOD USA - November 20, 2012: Inspired by his intense love of cars, animals and creativity, Big Book of Wacky Rides! by Fireball Tim is a mad-cap take on inanimate objects transformed into cool cars. Each illustration stands on its own as an amusing story, delighting children and parents around the world.

From the Olympic "Spoonster" to the "Snot Rocket", these wild and wacky rides take kids of all ages on a journey of the imagination and unique design exploration.

"Wow, what an exciting time," said Fireball Tim Lawrence, "It's been over 2 years since I did the very first sketch for my new kid's book and big thanks to Design Studio Press." "It's now available on Amazon (soon in Barnes & Noble and everywhere else) for Pre-Order. There's a very good chance that if you get one now, it'll be here for Christmas. But if not, shortly after."

"It's quite a humbling experience that this book is finally out and quite unbelievable," added Fireball. "Just goes to show that small steps can add up to great things. There are no Kid's Car Books and haven't been any since Richard Scarry's Busytown in the 60's. And with so mmany of us being cars guys and girls with kids, and want to share out passions with them, it was about time."

Stay tuned for updates on signings and event goofs for 2013, but the book will be everywhere in the new year.

Fireball Tim invites everyone to join him in creating a billion smiles through cool cars, and hopes for a great Holiday Season for all!
