Rated 3 out of 5 by from great for kids who love mighty machines If your little one is in love with mighty machines and can't get enough of them then this is the perfect book to share. Dump truck Dan is a whopper. He's very powerful and can fit 100 elephants in his tipper! He roars and honks louder than thunder and towers over all the other machines on the construction site... why his wheels are as big as a house. Dan wants to be busy putting all his power to work. He tries over and over to secure a job but is rejected because of his size... he's told that he is way too BIG! Oh my! He feels depressed and spurned because he truly wants to be part of a magnificent construction team. Then one day a calamity happens when a brand new sports stadium is being built. The only piece of equipment that can save the day is Massive Dan. When summoned Dan eagerly accepts the challenge and becomes a super hero to his peers. He is needed and appreciated which makes him a very, very happy Dump Truck. He finally is recognized for his strength and might and gets his just rewards. A wonderful life lesson is learned: never, ever give up, you are valuable. The illustrations are very simple and minimal and I feel did not enrich the storyline much. They did depict action and the ever-changing emotions of Dan which was helpful.
