Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Can trucks really have a party? In this large format, board book the anthropomorphized trucks are indeed gathering for a surprise birthday party. Everyone has a role: Dump Truck and Bucket Truck are in charge of decorations and Fire Truck brings the lights. Tow Truck bring the cake. What would a party be without some ice cream? So Ice Cream Truck brings the ice cream and some music. What about the guests? Car Transporter does his job by bringing lots of friends. Who is the party for? A little red truck! The clean-up job after the surprise party rests with Garbage Truck and Street Sweeper. Not really exciting unless you really happen to be obsessed by trucks. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
The cheerful cover may entice truck enthusiasts, but bland text will only disappoint. The relentlessly positive tone is set for the beginning, as smiling vehicles plan a birthday surprise for their friend. With no roadblocks to preparation, the gang all pitches in. Their work best suits their talents: Car Transporter drives in guests, for instance, and Tow Truck hauls the cake. Colorful balloons and sunny skies reinforce the buoyant ambiance. Pastel confetti further ups the cheer. Thick pages and the substantial trim size encourage toddlers to explore, but the text fails to energize the almost nonexistent plot. The stilted dialogue plods: "‘Wow!' says Little Truck. ‘Thank you! You are great friends!'" There are really no surprises in this party planning. Ice Cream Truck (no jaw-dropper here) brings the ice cream, and Street Sweeper and Garbage Truck clean up the mess. No need to RSVP, as this party's a snooze. (Board book. 1-3)
