What's Smashy Town About

Publisher Summary

Fans of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and I Stink! will love this rhythmic and lively picture book from the popular creators of Trashy Town.

With a turn of his crane and a swing of his wrecking ball, Mr. Gilly knocks down the old buildings. He smashes through brick and wood. He crashes through stone and glass. Then, with a push from his bulldozer, Mr. Gilly cleans it all up to make room for something brand-new!

Featuring lively text from Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha and dynamic art from acclaimed illustrator Dan Yaccarino, Smashy Town is a bouncy read-aloud that will delight young vehicle lovers.

This fun, colorful book would be a hit with kids who love construction sites, large machinery, or knocking things down. The repetition and rhythmic sounds are especially fun for toddlers and preschoolers. It’s a quick read as well, which makes it extra easy for little ones to stay engaged all the way to the last page.
