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)

My son Tyler has enjoyed this book since he was 1 1/2 and still enjoys it at 3 years old. He can recite the whole book and loves to read it to his little brother. It's a rythmic book that all children will enjoy. The pictures are great too.

My 19 month old and three year old demand this book be read every night before bed. They love screaming Help! Please Help! and Beep! Beep! My three year old has memorized the book and recites it along side of me. It is such a fun read. Even my husband enjoys reading it to our kids.

We got this book for my son's 2nd birthday as he loves any vehicle. He doesn't tire of it and neither do I. The pictures are great and the rhymes cute. He's learning to count to 5 because of the book.

My 3 1/2 year old twin boys absolutely love this book. We checked it out of the library and now must buy it because they cry every time it needs to go back. They can recite the book and want to read it every night. As a elementary school teacher I know that this kind of book is priceless!!

My grandson, age 3, loves trucks and this book is one of his favorites. Even though he knows the story by heart he wants you to read it to him several times a day. His sister, 17 months, likes the book and will sit quietly and listen, often pointing to the pictures.

I bought this book because my son's daycare teacher said he loved it. Well love is an understatement. He wants to read it every night and has memorized the pages.as you turn the page he is saying what's on the page. Great book, the child really gets into it. I bought two additional and gave them as birthday gift. I am also going to buy the other two books by these authors.

My 3 year old son has a huge library of books to choose from (we encourage reading every night!) and it never fails that this book must be read EVERY night. It's fun to read and we make the 'beep, beep' sounds together and he waves down the cars to help the stuck truck. I highly recommend this book for any toddler who loves trucks.
