Publisher Comments:

McToad likes Thursdays. Why? Because on every other day of the week, McToad mows Big Island, but on Thursdays, McToad mows Tiny Island. To do so, he puts his mower on the back of a truck, which drives to a train, which goes to a helicopter, which flies to a boat, which uses a crane to put the lawn mower onto Tiny Island. There McToad mows and drinks some lemonade, and before you know it, itandrsquo;s time to turn around and go back home. But first, the mower has to get lifted by a crane, to get put back on a boat, which is lifted by a helicopter, and . . . well . . . you get the idea.

From master storyteller Tom Angleberger and celebrated illustrator John Hendrix comes this playful narrative that treasures the journey over the destination, with lots of planes, trains, and automobiles to boot.

Review:

"A noisy construction site may be an unorthodox setting for a bedtime story, but newcomer Rinker and Lichtenheld (Shark vs. Train) tie together the dual themes neatly. Though more subdued than the trucks that drive Kate and Jim McMullan's I Stink! and I'm Dirty!, these anthropomorphized vehicles have a similar graphic feel and cheerful demeanor. After five machines are first pictured hard at work, they appear against a blazing sky: 'The sun has set, the work is done;/ It's time for trucks to end their fun./ So one by one they'll go to bed/ To yawn and rest their sleepy heads,/ Then wake up to another day/ Of rough-and-tough construction play!' Each truck performs one final task before settling down to sleep, with gentle encouragement: 'Shh... goodnight, Bulldozer, goodnight.' Rinker's rhythmic verse reinforces the vehicles' love of their work (Dump Truck 'moves the dirt/ from place to place,/ Then dumps it with a happy face') and, like Lichtenheld's art, deftly balances the story's boisterous and drowsy elements. Truck lovers will happily nod off to the strains of this read-aloud. Ages 4 — 8. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

Like many kids raised in the 70's, Mark was influenced at an early age by Star Wars and comic books. Unlike many kids, he grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, its neon and glitz looming over the city. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and currently lives and works in the Los Angeles area with his wife, artist Esther Pearl Watson, their daughter Lili and Mr. Pickles, a lovely French Bulldog.

The publisher comments and synopses above don't refer to this book. I've been trying to get my hands on this book for a while because it's so highly reviewed! From what I've seen (half-watching someone read it on Youtube), it seems really good! We loved Steam Train Dream Train"

John Chattin, August 6, 2012 (view all comments by John Chattin)
Perfect for the little bulldozer and dump truck lover in your house. The verses of “Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site” make the rumblings of a drowsy construction site into a soothing story, and the art makes these mighty vehicles cuddly and always worth another look each night. It’s been one of the few bedtime books that has been successful in transitioning a very energetic young boy into quiet time and bed.
