Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A book about trucks that talk and have personalities will appeal to some young children, especially boys. These characters from Trucktown, Payloader Pete and Dump Truck Dan, are brothers. They wake up one morning and see a huge pile of snow. Well, they know what to do. Pete loads it all into Dump Truck Dan. What fun they have as the snow pile is down to nothing in no time at all. What do these two crazy trucks decide to do? Dump it all out and do it all over again! Sound familiar? Young kids will have no problem relating to this story. The added attraction is the sparkly snow on the cover and on the last page. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
