About this title


Readers get a chance to explore the vehicles, drivers, passengers, boats, captains, and cargoes clustered around a drawbridge as Old Joe tries to fix it. Junior Lib Guild.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Hydraulic lifting bridges in New Hampshire are the inspiration for this fanciful story of a day when Old Joe's lifting bridge becomes stuck. Captain Pete can't get his tugboat under it, and eight vehicles driven by Farmer Jake, Dr. Paul, Mrs. Mabel, and so forth can't go over it. A ninth characer, a man who delivers apples to the grocery store, is added to the inconvenience as well, so that he can provide the final fillip--after the quirky bridge suddenly becomes unstuck, he can make his delivery and then return to the mountains to tell everyone what happened. Crisp black-pen illustrations filled in with eye-catching color busily depict the traffic snafu as a multitude of vehicles line up. Too many characters and a busy page design make this one hard for story hour crowds to enjoy; for curious lap-readers, the workings (and nonworkings) of a lifting bridge are not clearly delineated. Still, those who live near structures that seem to have minds of their own will identify with this story. --Susan Hepler, Alexandria City Public Schools, VA
