Animals take to the road, sea and sky in Truck Duck, the latest vehicular volume (My Race Car; My Fire Engine) by Michael Rex. Animals take their favorite modes of transport-namely, those that rhyme with their own names. The slightly menacing Cab Crab and notably confident Tug Bug are priceless. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

PreS-Rex's bright, engaging style suits this simple concept book. Each spread shows an animal in some form of transportation, from the clever ("Rig Pig" and "Blimp Chimp") to the less obvious (a "Hog Frog" is a green frog on a Harley-Davidson). The straightforward pictures are clear and detailed, showing the clean lines of a taxi ("Cab Crab") and even the gearshift on the tractor ("Plow Cow"). The animals have a serious yet comic look, confidently enjoying themselves on all these wonderful machines. The very brief text lends itself to rhyming wordplay, an important skill for preschool learners. Bruce McMillan's Play Day: A Book of Terse Verse (Holiday, 1991; o.p.) set the standard for books with short rhyming phrases. This is a worthy addition to the genre, and will please the little guys and gals who love things that roll, float, and fly.-Lauralyn Persson, Wilmette Public Library, IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

"For preschoolers, this is exciting read-aloud stuff about the street outside and the play on the floor at home." --Booklist

"On the ground, in the water, or through the air, here comes a parade of trucks, boats, and other vehicles, each piloted by a smiling animal. . . . These mighty machines will rivet fans of all things big, noisy, and on the go." --Kirkus Reviews A Parents' Choice Silver Honor Award Winner
