Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Not quite hink pinks or terse verse, but whatever you call them, they are fun. The author pairs unlikely words that rhyme to create a visually and linguistically funny book. When did you last see a roach featured in a picture book? Here it is, coach roach with clipboard in hand, er, leg. There is glove dove, who misses the catch, and finish line porcupine, who is still running with the broken tape trailing behind. Brightly-colored pages are the backgrounds for the visual puns: illustrations that are cleanly and simply drawn. It is the expressions on the animals' faces as well as the activities they are engaged in that make you smile. Each animal character, including a cat, a yak, and a kiwi, is drawn realistically, but what the artist shows the animals doing is something else. This is a book that will be welcome in the home as well as school. 2005, Putnam, Ages 4 to 8.
—Diane Carver Sekeres
School Library Journal
PreS-K-This clever follow-up to Truck Duck (Putnam, 2004) will appeal to the youngest budding athletes and animal lovers. Single- and double-page illustrations show smiling critters engaged in all kinds of sports and comically set the scene for the absurd two-word rhymes. Children will love meeting "Coach Roach," "Quarterback Yak," "Hurdle Turtle," and others; the last spread is saved for "Finish line Porcupine." The appealing cartoon characters are set against clean, brightly colored backgrounds. The humor carries onto the endpapers, which depict trophies for all of the creatures found inside. The vivid pictures and large-size text make this lively book easy to share with a group, while its heavy-stock pages guarantee marathon endurance.-Julie Roach, Watertown Free Public Library, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Rex follows up Truck Duck (2004) with another set of exuberant-looking animals, set against plain backgrounds of bright primary hues and matched to two-word rhymes on stiff card stock. This time around, he celebrates athletics and adds a bit of plot: "Kick Chick" whomps a soccer ball that "Goal Mole" deftly deflects, for instance; "Bat Cat" clobbers a baseball over the head of "Glove Dove"; "Freestyle Crocodile" zooms through on a skateboard; and "Quarterback Yak" passes to "Receiver Beaver" past a line of pompom-waving "Cheer Deer." The action, the bright colors and the rhyming sounds add up to a winner well worth sharing with pre-emergent readers. (Picture book. 2-4)
