Smash! Crash! by Jon Scieszka

This first book in the Trucktown series was created with young male readers in mind, and any reader that likes to smash and crash will definitely be hooked.  From their messy encounter with Cement Mixer Melvin to their surprising meeting with Wrecking Crane Rosie, Jack Truck and Dump Truck Dan proclam their love of demolition with a refrain that kids will love to hear (and say with you) –“Smash! Crash!”  Young readers will love the friendly anthropomorphized vehicles and the bright, extremely energetic illustrations.   Truck lovers young and old will want to check out this “smashing” book!
