Gregory CowlesSmash! Crash!, is as rowdy and colorful as anything [Scieszka's] written…Parents probably won't love this series the way they love The Stinky Cheese Man, but that's only because as Scieszka reaches out to younger readers, he's stopped trying so hard to please the grown-ups. I might miss his tap-dancing—in the end, I'm a grown-up too—but Scieszka knows his audience. The same children who chant "Can we fix it?" as they watch "Bob the Builder," after all, turn around and yell "Can we break it?" as they attack their block towers. For them, Trucktown should be a smash.
