Staff Reviews

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!

Praise For…

"Hendrix's richly detailed, brightly colored spreads make the book visually engaging."

— Kirkus Reviews

"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.”
