Trucktown: Uh-Oh Max by Jon Scieszka - OPTIONAL

Scieszka, Jon  Trucktown: Uh-Oh, Max  Illustrated by David Shannon, Loren Long and David Gordon  Simon Spotlight, 2009.  $16.99  EARLY READER Content: G.  

Max is a monster truck that likes to drive crazy.  He gets himself stuck and all of his different friends try to help him, but it takes Tow Truck Ted to get Max out.  Once Max is unstuck, he goes back to his same ways and crashes again.  

This story has only about 5-6 words per page, so it’s easy for new readers.  There isn’t much of a story, and it feels more like an introduction to all of the characters of Trucktown.  The colorful illustrations with a silly monster truck will appeal to little boys though.  EL (K-3)-OPTIONAL.  

Reviewer, C. Peterson.
