From Car to Space Ship (1954?)

This is a bit of a "mystery book". I don't have a date on it so I have to guess it might be mid-1950s. It also seems more British than American so there is that. It is only 10 pages.

It displays a lovely streamlined design sense for future vehicles. The vehicles are all driven by children and are fanciful.

The cars especially remind me of both "Thunderbirds" in the 1960s and of the soviet books that always had: A car, a helicopter, a hydrofoil and a spaceship.

This book also had coloring examples for the illustrations so you could chose to paint them?

But I love rockets for children and this final illustration of rockets to Saturn while the animals of Earth wave is pretty special.
