What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Count the trucks getting stuck in a traffic jam in this rhythmic read-aloud sure to draw in kids who love everything on wheels.

One ice-cream truck selling everything sweet breaks down and blocks the middle of our street. If you’re a little boy on a bike, an ice-cream truck on your street is always a welcome sight. But what if the truck breaks down and blocks the mail truck behind it (now there are two), not to mention a third truck carrying hay? One by one, trucks of all types and sizes and functions are sure to pile up behind, offering ample opportunity for ogling — and counting. And maybe the boy’s idea for putting one of the trucks to good use might even save the day!

Who Illustrated 20 Big Trucks in the Middle of the Street

illustrator
Kurt Cyrus

Before he got into kids’ books, Kurt had a bunch of other jobs: picking fruit, mixing concrete, delivering oxygen, driving fork lifts, installing parking meters, mixing brine for maraschino cherries, and operating mechanical ventilators in a hospital, among other things. But nothing can compare with writing and illustrating.
