Product Description
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.

Zooom! Roared trucks down the avenue. Whooee...went a siren.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—Little Blue Truck rides in rhyme again, this time carrying crates of lettuce to a metropolitan market. His bug-eyed headlights show appreciation for the city views, as well as discomfort when the faster-paced vehicles harass him. From a double-decker bus to the mayor's limousine, traffic irritably jams into a crunch intensified by the limo engine's demise. The portly, gray-haired mayor uses Little Blue as a podium, instructing citizens to follow the truck's advice to travel "one at a time." The resulting courtesy creates a smooth flow, even when a marching band joins the line. Everyone cheers for the little truck, who leads the way with the mayor as his passenger. McElmurry's gouache scenes are spot-on. Simple compositions in calming indigo and cream in the country starkly contrast with the jam-packed city scenes where a crush of buildings barely shows the sky. The urbanites are a rich mix of ethnicity and purpose: coffee drinkers, construction workers, dog walkers, briefcase carriers, they all pound the pavement. The tale is a fine illustration for classes studying urban and rural settings, and the simple plot is a treat for even very young listeners.—Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA END --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's OK
By Gabrielle Drummond on September 3, 2017
My son LOVES Little Blue Truck so I ordered this one for his birthday. It's an OK book but doesn't flow like the original. The beginning of the book it starts real nice like the original but then it starts to change. Maybe because it's longer than the original, that's why it doesn't flow as easily? I'm not sure.
At the end of this one, Little Blue doesn't end the book with his trademark 'Beep Beep Beep' so that was disappointing. That's my sons favorite part. So when I read this to him I say the beep, beep, beep even though it's not at the end.

1.0 out of 5 stars Faulty book amd really disappointing!!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 5, 2020
I'm extremely disappointed to receive this faulty book, I hate sending things back and now I'm worried that it won't be here intoned for Christmas if I do have to send it back to get a replacement. My little boy loves cars and I was so excited upon ordering this book so you can only imagine my disappointment. Does nobody check these items before sending them? I will be contacting the seller in the hopes they can just send me a book that's not faulty. Otherwise if you don't get a faulty one, it's a lovely book.
