Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The cut-out on the cover is a hologram that shows a dump truck that actually drops its load when the book is moved. Each spread features something that goes—like an airplane soaring across a blue sky, or a race car moving around a track, or a train emerging from a dark tunnel. The shuttle is launched into space after a countdown, while something more down to earth shows a digger at work excavating a large trench. There is a speedboat leaving behind a huge spray as it races across the water, and on the closing spread a hook and ladder fire truck raises its ladder to rescue someone in a burning building. The back cover states "Watch the vehicles in motion with this incredible lenticular technology!" which may be a bit of an overstatement. They do not zoom off the pages, but there is motion to entertain young readers. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Publishers Weekly
Using the same lenticular technology as the duo's Watch Me Hop!, this compact book creates the illusion of moving vehicles, including a race car, spaceship and fire engine. The movements, undeniably smooth and detailed, are “activated” when readers tilt the book vertically. Some are exceptional (an approaching train slowly floods a dark tunnel with light), as the eight machines identify themselves in bold, block print: “I'm a digger./ My treads go around./ Watch me go move the ground!” It's a simple, modest optical effect, but paired with the book's crisp silhouette backgrounds, it should hold readers' attention. Ages 3–up. (Sept.)\
