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!
"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.)"
