Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this companion to Amazing Pop-Up Big Machines, Crowther offers formidable pop-ups of a car transporter, a cement mixer, a monster truck, a "rubbish" truck, and truck trains. Each spread contains a description of the featured vehicle and its primary function, while flaps offer photographs along with additional information about how the trucks operate: for example, a grapple truck is pictured loading "oversized rubbish," and another flap reveals monster truck "Bigfoot 14" breaking a long jump record in 1999 by sailing over an airplane. The brightly colored vehicles, which include working door/window flaps, and real-life details should give truck enthusiasts a gratifying peek into the world of big rigs. Ages 3–up. (Sept.)

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
The large size of this 10" by 12" pop-up book about trucks makes it an awkward book to handle. The five double-page spreads illustrate a car transporter, a concrete truck, a monster truck categorized only by its size, a garbage truck and a truck train that might have two or more individual truck bodies traveling on trailers pulled by a single truck with a powerful motor. Truck trains only travel on long roads in remote areas and are particularly suited for Australia, Argentina and parts of the United States and Canada where they are not likely to encounter much traffic or congestion of any kind. There are flaps to lift on every spread and interesting information about each kind of truck. One of the trucks, labeled simply a monster truck, can be popped up and made to stand erect on a platform. The picture on the back of the book shows it properly installed.
Kirkus Reviews
Low production values and uninspired paper engineering keep this gallery of megatrucks in the garage. Not only are the five central pop-ups--a Car Transporter, a "Concrete-Transport Truck," a Monster Truck, a Garbage Truck and a multi-trailer Truck Train--so oversized that some need additional pats and massaging to open up, once fully expanded they mostly just sit there. They offer little in the way of moving parts beyond a tiny extending trough and flap-open doors on the cement truck (big whoopee) or a tab that pulls the Monster Truck all of three inches forward. Although weights and measures and much of the language have been Americanized from the original British English, some glitches remain. "Concrete-Transport trucks" is used instead of the more familiar "cement mixer," for instance, and "Pneumatic Trucks" instead of "sewer cleaners." Furthermore, the garbage truck is parked between a house and the two trash bins left outside, which makes no sense, and is also propped up with a pair of brick buttresses that seem to be present just to keep it from collapsing. An inferior (though still engaging for the right audience) follow-up to the far better-made and more feature-rich Amazing Pop-Up Big Machines (2010). (Pop-up nonfiction. 7-9)
