"The book's artistry shines." -"Publishers Weekly
"
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--even the mayor's limousine. With everyone pushing to be first, a traffic jam ensues. Hey--one at a time! But even a wrangle-tangle is no match for Little Blue Truck, who comes to the rescue in true Blue style. Jill McElmurry's vibrant illustrations honk with bright colors and city energy, as do the boisterous rhymes. A delightful big-book companion to "Little Blue Truck."
