Trucks: Whizz! Zoom! Rumble!

OK, is there any book about trucks that a two year old boy doesn’t like? The difference is that YOU may enjoy Patricia Hubble and Megan Halsey’s clever and beautifully illustrated book. Not are the collages detailed, they are also quite funny: a lightening bug drives the electrical service van, a mattress truck stops for the night at a motel, a canary whizzes off to the coal mine. Hubble and Halsey have followed Trucks with books about planes, trains, and automobiles, but none has the freshness and originality of the original Trucks. Giggle factor: high. Adult enjoyment: likely. Illustrations: four jelly jars (higher if you haven’t seen the other books in the series).
