Description (4.5 stars) (89/100) (3.5 stars)

Mum’s Cronky Car is the tale of an unappreciated, old car with a surprise under its hood. Getting nothing but abuse from impatient drivers and amused pedestrians it looks like its days are numbered. Even its own family find it an embarrasment!
But then out of the blue, it does something extraordinary. Now its back in favour and the family’s adventures together are just beginning…
