Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A pooch's dump truck hits a pothole, and a shaggy dog tale ensues before the vehicle is freed in My Truck Is Stuck! by Kevin Lewis, illus. by Daniel Kirk. New to board book format, this tale was deemed "a load of fun" in PW's review of the original. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-K-In this rhyming tale, two dogs in baseball caps and overalls haul a load of bones in their dump truck. They haven't gone very far before their wheel hits an enormous pothole. "Rotten luck. Can't go!/My truck is stuck," laments the driver. The two canines run after passersby, yelling: "Help!/Please help!/Does anyone know/how to make/my stuck truck go?" Some counting practice slips in as a series of progressively larger vehicles all try to "heft and haul," "tug and tow," "drag and draw" the truck out of the hole, but to no avail. Then, Mr. Mechanic shows up in his tow truck. The bright, full-page artwork, done with oil paint over sand and modeling paste on masonite, is full of humorous detail. The visuals will draw children in to the story, as they realize that unbeknownst to the drivers, a group of prairie dogs has made off with their load. This entertaining choice will please young truck lovers, and is sure to produce lots of laughs at storyhour.-Melinda Piehler, North Tonawanda Public Library, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A dump truck, a hole in the road, a bit of counting practice—all give post-toddlers plenty of reason to toot their horns in this dog-gone lively episode from the creators of Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo (1999). " ‘Help! Please help!’ " the driver pleads, " ‘Does anyone know / how to make / my stuck truck go?’ " With big, bright oils over sand and plaster, Kirk depicts an all-dog (but not all canine: see below) cast of passing motorists lining up to lend a paw. But not even one, two, three, four, five roaring engines can budge the truck, until at long last a tow truck rumbles up to add the needed oomph. That—and the fact that all along a horde of gleeful prairie dogs has been surreptitiously offloading the truck’s load of mouthwatering bones. Featuring the deepest pothole since the one that snared Judy Hindley’s Big Red Bus (1995), this gives The Enormous Turnip and like tales an updated setting. (Picture book. 4-7)
