Zooom! Wooeeee . . . ! "Make way!" The big city sure is a speedy, noisy place for a country truck like Blue. Everywhere Blue looks, he sees buses, police cars, taxis, vans, a street sweeper, and even the mayor’s limousine. With everyone pushing to be first, soon there’s a giant traffic jam! But even a wrangle-tangle is no match for Little Blue Truck, who comes to the rescue in true Blue style. Brimming with bright colors, sounds, and city energy, this new adventure makes working together and taking turns more fun than ever.
This sequel to Little Blue Truck brings the rustic pickup truck to a busy cityscape where Little Blue is dwarfed by towering yet cozy buildings and jostled by the frantic pace of traffic ("Swish! Swash! Swoosh! went a big street sweeper, hollering 'Hey! Better move, little beeper!' "). But Blue's diplomacy keeps things running smoothly: "You might be fast and I might be slow, but one at a time is the way to go." It's in the fusion of the old-fashioned with the modern-eclectic one man in the crowd listens to an iPod that the book's artistry shines. Ages 3 7.
