Cars, trucks, and vans an irresistible subject for small childrenNo series like it on the market - this makes 12 titles!Lovable anthropomorphic charactersPlenty of detail about how things workWonderful little stories to read aloudBright, cheerful, chunky artwork just right for the age groupPerfect for childFrom School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-Anthropomorphic cars and trucks are featured in five short episodes starring Benny the Breakdown Truck, a wrecker. Bright full-color cartoons depict motorized antics and problems in the midst of a human world: a messy garage, bent fenders, wrecks in fields and canals, jealous rivalry over film stardom. Some humor is definitely meant for adult readers, e.g., wordplay such as director Bergspiel, Alfie Romeo, and Francis Ford Popular III (who has acting in his oil). But there is adequate slapstick for young readers as well: naughty Morton the motorcycle lands in a pile of manure and a rude blue car gets his just deserts. The large format enables group sharing, but the short chapters invite beginning chapter-book readers.
