Reviews

[A] lively picture book multitasking as a counting book, a truck book, and an ice-cream wish-fulfillment story... --The Horn Book It's [Cyrus's] portrayal of the trucks as solid machines momentarily sidelined from their essential duties, along with the evocation of a neighborhood brought together by a benign "Didja ever..." moment, that makes the book feel inspired. --Publishers Weekly Counting books in verse are plentiful, but this one stands out. The words roll off the tongue, a good thing, as children will demand to hear it again and again. --School Library Journal Not just a counting book, the rhyming text artfully tells a story, which climaxes when the clever young observer suggests a nifty way to get the trucks rolling again. ... Good for storytimes and one-on-one sharing, this should delight even the most jaded of truck-book aficionados. --Booklist Online [H]andsome entertainment. This softly rhyming picture book presents children with a small but exciting dilemma that quickly involves--hurrah!--all sorts of trucks. --The Wall Street Journal The large format, bouncy rhyme and increasing mayhem all answer the energetic child's desire for things to be big and loud. However, the book subtly focuses the attention, too, as its captivating illustrations invite careful "reading." --Newsday
