Booklist Review

PreS^-K. The author and artist who produced Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo (1999) turn to dump trucks, a topic as fascinating for tykes as locomotives. This book rhymes, it counts, and it shows a big, red dump truck (license plate: Bonz-4U), driven by two dogs and carrying a cargo of bones, traveling across a desert landscape where the only inhabitants are prairie dogs peeking out of a gigantic pot hole in the middle of the road. When the truck gets stuck in the hole, the dogs seek help. A series of would-be rescuers, including a car, a Ruff and Reddy moving van, and a bus, try towing the dump truck out. The drama unfolds on double-page spreads made sunny and funny with vibrant oil paints. A neat subplot follows the prairie dogs as they sneak more and more bones off the truck, until, finally, the truck is successfully towed away, completely empty of its cargo. Great fun. --Connie Fletcher


Publisher's Weekly Review

A pooch's dump truck hits a pothole, and a shaggy dog tale ensues before the vehicle is freed in My Truck Is Stuck! by Kevin Lewis, illus. by Daniel Kirk. New to board book format, this tale was deemed "a load of fun" in PW's review of the original. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-In this rhyming tale, two dogs in baseball caps and overalls haul a load of bones in their dump truck. They haven't gone very far before their wheel hits an enormous pothole. "Rotten luck. Can't go!/My truck is stuck," laments the driver. The two canines run after passersby, yelling: "Help!/Please help!/Does anyone know/how to make/my stuck truck go?" Some counting practice slips in as a series of progressively larger vehicles all try to "heft and haul," "tug and tow," "drag and draw" the truck out of the hole, but to no avail. Then, Mr. Mechanic shows up in his tow truck. The bright, full-page artwork, done with oil paint over sand and modeling paste on masonite, is full of humorous detail. The visuals will draw children in to the story, as they realize that unbeknownst to the drivers, a group of prairie dogs has made off with their load. This entertaining choice will please young truck lovers, and is sure to produce lots of laughs at storyhour.-Melinda Piehler, North Tonawanda Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
