This Truck 
By Paul Collicutt

    In “This Truck,” Collicutt brings little readers a boldly-colored display of trucks - little ones, big ones and enormous ones. Page after page, little readers are introduced to various trucks at work. There’s a truck that carries a rocket. There are trucks with cranes. There is a truck that sweeps the street, and one that travels in a convoy. Each one is different and does a special job. No matter the size of the truck or the job it does, the little ones will gasp in delight at the sight of each one.

      And for those with a grown-up obsession for trucks, Collicutt includes drawings on the inside covers of history’s most popular trucks, such as the Ford Model T fire engine (USA, 1919), the Morris Royal Mail van (U.K., 1946), Labatt’s Streamliner (Canada, 1948), and Volkswagen Model 261 (Germany, 1960).

   It’s a wonderful nonfiction book for both grownups and kids alike.
