Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover what five amazing machines can do in a spectacular pop-up book of trucks!

How are car transporters loaded? Why do cement trucks have to hurry to the building site? What happens to your trash after the truck collects it from your house? Which is the biggest-ever monster truck? Do you know what a truck train is? Buckle up for a 3D, hands-on celebration of five of the most awesome trucks around from master paper engineer Robert Crowther. Each spread features:

-- A giant pop-up truck with moving parts

--A description of what the truck can do

--A photo showing the truck in real life

--A fact file of cool details

--Flaps revealing fascinating truck trivia!

Review:

"In this companion to Amazing Pop-Up Big Machines, Crowther offers formidable pop-ups of a car transporter, a cement mixer, a monster truck, a 'rubbish' truck, and truck trains. Each spread contains a description of the featured vehicle and its primary function, while flaps offer photographs along with additional information about how the trucks operate: for example, a grapple truck is pictured loading 'oversized rubbish,' and another flap reveals monster truck 'Bigfoot 14' breaking a long jump record in 1999 by sailing over an airplane. The brightly colored vehicles, which include working door/window flaps, and real-life details should give truck enthusiasts a gratifying peek into the world of big rigs. Ages 3 — up. (Sept.)"
