Now he’s got a great new series for very young readers, ages 4 and up: Jon Scieszka’s Trucktown. For this series Scieszka has brought in David Shannon, a celebrated children’s book author in his own right (No, David! series of picture books, Alice the Fairy, A Bad Case of Stripes, How I Became A Pirate, more), to illustrate the series.
Jack Truck and his best friend Dump Truck Dan are spending the day doing their favorite thing… Smashing and Crashing throughout the whole town! Along the way they meet up with their friends and give us a rollicking tour! But when a mysterious shadow falls and a strange voice calls, is the duo in trouble? Or has a new friend come to town to join in all the smashing fun.
