Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The plucky Dumpy the dump truck now stars in a pair of My First I Can Read Books by Julie Andrews Edwards and Emma Walton Hamilton, illus. by Tony Walton: Dumpy's Apple Shop, in which the four-wheel hero helps the Barnes family take their wares to the Apple Harbor Apple Day Celebration, and Dumpy to the Rescue! which finds Dumpy and the whole farm searching for Baby Goat after he goes missing at dinnertime. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-While existing "Dumpy" titles (Hyperion) are geared toward beginning readers with a bit of fluency, these two entries about the lovable red dump truck are designed for the earliest of readers. In the first offering, Dumpy assists the Barnes family by delivering the appropriate dinner to various animals on their farm and helps solve the mystery of missing Baby Goat. In the second book, Dumpy plays a part in the apple harvest by transporting apple products to town and later by being transformed into a stand to sell the fruit. Colorful cartoon illustrations support both texts. This appealing truck may charm preschoolers and this format may invite some new readers aboard. Established fans, however, may be disappointed in the lack of substance.-Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Dumpy's Apple Shop - great for kids

    Another delightful little book in this series! Dumpy wants to help, as most little children do; he learns that patience is rewarded.

    I would highly recommend, both for reading to children and for reading by children, any of the Dumpy series or The Very Fairy Princess series.

    My granddaughter loves the Dumpy books, too!
