Praise For…


"Hendrix's richly detailed, brightly colored spreads make the book visually engaging."

— Kirkus Reviews

STARRED REVIEW
"Angleberger’s sly charmer is a gift to any reader besotted with engines, motors, and combustible fuel...It’s an unabashed celebration of the pleasure of using big machines to move things around—just because."

— Publishers Weekly

“With large, zany illustrations and rapidly escalating hilarity, this lark of a book is sure to entertain big-machine-loving kids during storytime.”

— Booklist
