From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-Fourteen monster trucks are brought to life through giant cartoons that roar with personality and an enthusiastic text. Each bold spread introduces a different massive machine, such as a garbage truck named Stink ("Eating and crunching,/munching and slurping./Just don't be around/when this guy starts burping"); Mr. Salty the snowplow; and Suds, a "Slime-sucking sweeper." Bright, solid-colored backgrounds allow the vehicles to take center stage. Large eyes glare from headlights and windshields, while grills and bumpers grin and grimace as the machines dig and lift, haul and move. Children can learn interesting facts about all of these trucks on the final page, where each vehicle's size, speed, and special features are listed. A good choice for storytime and one-on-one sharing, this book will spend more time on the road than on the shelf.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
