This is lovely! If it is not already, I can see this as part of a book some day ... don't you think? What a fun scene!

That kid in the back seems to know something... he's having too much fun. Maybe he's the slow and steady one. Or maybe he's just flirting with the girls.

A very fun illustration, the wheels on the carts are perfect. And the kids who decorated the carts have good imaginations.
