Publisher Comments:

Clank! Rattle! Bang! Who's making all that noise? Backhoe Loader, reporting for duty. Cleaning up a mess? Easy as pie. Make that a mud pie. RRRRRM! RRRRRM! Who wants to be clean when it's so much fun being dirty? Clunk! I just LOVE my job!

Review:

"As they did in I Stink! and I'm Mighty!, these creative collaborators introduce a spunky anthropomorphic character — in this case a backhoe loader who relishes his dirty work. 'Who's got a boom, a dipper stick, and a bucket with a row of chompers? Me! And that's just my rear end,' he announces proudly. After a flatbed truck carries him to a lot filled with discarded items, the backhoe digs in with gusto, providing an alliterative countdown as he cleans up 10 torn-up truck tires, nine fractured fans, eight busted beach umbrellas, etc. 'Hope ya like noise,' he says gleefully, as he drops his load in a dumpster, creating quite a din ('Clank! Bang! Bong! Clunk!'). The cheerful, chatty fellow then uproots a tree stump ('Aw Stumpie — loosen up') and fills in the hole, a job he deems a 'piece of cake. Make that a mud cake with dirt sprinkles and a scoop of Rocky Road.' After taking a mud bath and flattening out the lot, the machine, much to his delight, is dirty indeed. Energetic illustrations capture these mucky goings-on with a large dollop of humor, as type of varying sizes cavorts playfully across the pages. Abundant sound effects make this a high-spirited read-aloud." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
