How to Walk a Dump Truck (Hardcover)
“Plenty of visual comedy [and] the central dump truck is cute to boot.” —BCCB
“A story that is sometimes hilarious and always absurd. A treat for vehicle-loving kids.” —Booklist
“An engaging combination of the serious and the silly.” —Publishers Weekly
From the creators of the absurdly funny picture book How to Eat an Airplane comes a new spin on adopting a pet...truck.
This vehicular spin on pet adoption features an unlikely pet: a dump truck. Kids will not only laugh, but learn.
Just like a new pet, a new dump truck is a heap of responsibility, but it’s also loads of fun. Just remember: If you take care of it well, your dump truck will be your forever friend.
Includes tips on: selecting the perfect leash at the hardware store; whether to feed your truck diesel or regular; cleaning up your truck’s messes at the dump; socializing with other trucks, and much more.
Peter Pearson and Mircea Catusanu’s follow-up to How to Eat an Airplane is clever fun for pet lovers and truck aficionados—whether their pet (or truck) barks, meows, or honks.
About the Author
Peter Pearson spends most of his time pressed against the fence of the Minneapolis–St. Paul International Airport. He was almost kicked out of the children’s writing program at Hamline University for eating a teacher’s pencil, but fortunately they let him stay.
Mircea Catusanu spends most of his time suspended at thirty thousand feet between his native Romania and his home in New York, living the high life. Literally. He enjoys fishing off Long Island for one of his favorite sandwich ingredients: submarines.
