Every Thursday, as a break from mowing Big Island, McToad and his tractor make their way to Tiny Island, using various modes of transportation and types of machinery to get there and back.
I fell in love with this book when I first saw the cover, and especially for vehicle lovers, it only gets better from there. The illustrations are awesome—detailed, creative and engaging—as are the hand-lettered fonts for each vehicle name and following McToad on his journey to mow Tiny Island is far more entertaining than you might originally think.
I wrote this book off when I first read it, but my son immediately took to it. He asked to read it over and over again. I found that with each iteration I actually enjoyed the book more and more (which is untrue of many books). The story follows a cheerful McToad who goes to great lengths to mow Tiny Island each Thursday. To reach the island he must transport his lawnmower by airplane, boat, helicopter, and train which seems like a great deal of effort, but not for McToad who seems to enjoy every minute of the journey.
