Description

"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.
