On most days, McToad's job is to mow big island, but the adventures really begin on Thursdays, when he mows tiny island. The trip to tiny island involve a truck, train, forklift, airplane, helicopter, boat, dock, and a crane. Each vehicle is punctuated with a fun, illustrated font and the page when McToad mows Tiny Island, demands to be read in chorus. At the end of the day, McToad takes the trip backwards: follow the arrows from crane to truck until next Thursday, when he gets to do it all again!

STARRED REVIEW "Angleberger’s sly charmer is a gift to any reader besotted with engines, motors, and combustible fuel...It’s an unabashed celebration of the pleasure of using big machines to move things around—just because."
— Publishers Weekly
“With large, zany illustrations and rapidly escalating hilarity, this lark of a book is sure to entertain big-machine-loving kids during storytime.”
