Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreSThis colorful series of sturdy, square books features impressive paper engineering. A tow truck lifts a car, a tugboat tows an ocean liner, a bulldozer pushes earth, and a helicopter's rotor twirls. The cast features expressive faces with skin shades from white to pink to brown to blackthe moving man pushing the piano into the truck looks appropriately distressed, as do the rowers in the rowboat. The bold, bright illustrations with heavy black outlines are reminiscent of the work of Byron Barton; they will work well with young audiences. Must-buys for libraries that include pop-ups in their collections or for use in preschool storyhours.Lisa Falk, Palos Verdes Library, CA
