Uh-Oh, Maxby Jon Scieszka, David Shannon, Loren Long, David Gordon
Max is having so much fun that he keeps getting stuck! Will anyone in Trucktown be able to help him out?
Children's Literature - Shirley NelsonThis “Ready-to-Read” book in Jon Scieszka’s “Trucktown” series finds Max, the truck, having loads of fun as he careens down the highway. Typically, he finds himself in trouble and needing help from his friends. When Max is stuck under an underpass, Jack, his truck friend, tries to push him out but is unsuccessful. Next, Kat, the bulldozer, tries to dig Max out to no avail. Gabby, the pink truck, comes but her incessant talking does not assist in the move. Next, the ice cream truck arrives and drives circles around Max, but ice cream will not free Max from the underpass. Twin fire engines spray Max with their hoses, but he is still stuck. Finally Tow Truck Ted is able to rescue Max from his predicament only to watch Max carelessly zoom away, jump, and crash down the road calling for Jack once again. Large font and colorful illustrations make this an inviting book for early readers, especially those who love trucks. The truck’s comical facial expressions will make readers laugh out loud as they read Max’s adventure again and again. Reviewer: Shirley Nelson; Ages 4 to 6.
