"This sequel to Little Blue Truck brings the rustic pickup truck to a busy cityscape where Little Blue is dwarfed by towering yet cozy buildings and jostled by the frantic pace of traffic ('Swish! Swash! Swoosh! went a big street sweeper, hollering 'Hey! Better move, little beeper!' '). But Blue's diplomacy keeps things running smoothly: 'You might be fast and I might be slow, but one at a time is the way to go.' 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. Ages 3 7."
