Meet Mr. Gilly. He cleans up Trashy Town. There’s trash at the pizza parlor, trash at the school, and trash at every house. It’s a big job, but Mr. Gilly does it with a big truck, a big smile, and loads of style.

Trashy Town features a rhythmic, repeatable refrain that will have children clamoring for repeat readings. Dynamic art from acclaimed illustrator Dan Yaccarino puts the zip in Mr. Gilly’s stride and adds style and charm to trash collection. Perfect for fans of all books about things that GO!

Dump it in, smash it down, drive around the Trashy Town!

The book is much better than the scholastic video. It has a great rhythm. Trash is a fascinating topic for a toddler.

"Little by little, can by can, Mr. Gilly, the trash man, cleans up his town."

My two year old watched the DVD version on Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, so we got her the book and she loves reading it and watching the story over and over again! This is an excellent addition to a toddler library.

My three-year-old was introduced to this book through its video format (its included in the 'Chicka-Chicka Boom-Boom' video), and insists that I sing the book to him, rather than read it. I find myself humming it and repeating the text throughout my day, even when he's not around!

My son loves this book. The first time I read it to him he asked me to read it again and again. I think the repetitiveness really appeals to him, since he has already memorized it. We are going to buy it for a birthday party today.
