Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525459510, Hardcover)

The fourteen stories in this book are very short, very original, and will take readers for a great ride! Each story is told in four rhyming lines and four illustrated panels, with a turn of the page starting a new one. They are all about trucks and vehicles, including the crawler crane of the title, some dizzy delivery vans, an excavator with terrible table manners, and many more. Zany and silly, each story is as quirky and imaginative as the next, and good for a laugh. The art style is contemporary, sophisticated, and pointedly whimsical. The text is clever and short, perfect for the busy parents of today's on-the-move youngsters. Truck lovers will go into high gear for these sly and satisfying tales. Mittie Cuetara is the author-illustrator of Terrible Teresa and Other Very Short Stories (Dutton). School Library Journal raved that it combined the originality of Jon Scieszka and the wit of Jack Prelutsky with Maira Kalman's style of illustration. An original, refreshing, and useful offering.

Rhyming text and illustrations present a variety of vehicles and their functions, including moving van, police car, and crawler crane.
