What did you like about the book? The two geniuses who gave us How to Train a Train have returned to bestow yet another gem. “If you want a pet truck – and who doesn’t? – you’ve come to the right person! I’ve got two dump trucks and a fire engine myself. I think everyone should have one! And that’s why I wrote this book.” Your local pet store does not sell trucks. First you must decide just what kind of truck you want and one that will fit your lifestyle. The fun dialog and John Rocco’s ingenious illustrations will delight all of the pet-truck seekers out there! (I wonder what could be next as a pet….?)

Anything you didn’t like about it? Nope.

To whom would you recommend this book? Those who loved How to Train a Train – as I did and millions of others – will be over the moon with the publication of this new one!

Who should buy this book? All public libraries, lower elementary grades and child-care centers

Where would you shelve it? Picture books

Should we (librarians) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Yes!
