About the book

Zooom! Wooeeee . . . ! "Make way!" The big city sure is a speedy, noisy place for a country truck like Blue. Everywhere Blue looks, he sees buses, police cars, taxis, vans, a street sweeper, and even the mayor’s limousine. With everyone pushing to be first, soon there’s a giant traffic jam! But even a wrangle-tangle is no match for Little Blue Truck, who comes to the rescue in true Blue style.

 

Brimming with bright colors, sounds, and city energy, this new adventure makes working together and taking turns more fun than ever.

Reviews

". . . big, swooshing street sweeper; the taxi with screeching brakes; the busy police car; the frowning bus. The angry traffic standoffs and the small truck’s triumph will be welcome fuel for many preschoolers’ imaginative play."--Booklist

 

"It's in the fusion of the old-fashioned with the modern-eclectic--one man in the crowd listens to an iPod--that the book's artistry shines."--Publisher's Weekly
