All monsters love the autumn air,
just right to sneak and spook and scare.
But other seasons of the year,
they shift into a different gear.

Monsters get to work-paving roads, plowing snow, hauling muck-with their monster trucks in this fun, rhyming picture book. With a gentle bedtime ending, this not-too-scary story is perfect for young monster and truck lovers.

Editorial Reviews

"This is pitch perfect for kids who favor giggles over shivers, and the closing observation that tuckered-out monsters sleep in their own beds at night-not under yours-puts any lingering doubt to rest." -The Bulletin on Monster Trucks"On hiatus from their Halloween activities, various monsters "shift into a different gear" by taking on roadside work. Debut author Keller gets plenty of mileage from the titular pun, playfully matching monsters to appropriate truck" -Publishers Weekly on Monster Trucks"Just the book for the perceptive kids who ask where all the Halloween monsters go the rest of the year. They drive monster trucks, of course, each one perfectly suited to the job and truck at hand." -Kirkus Reviews on Monster Trucks"A terrific read-aloud and a welcome addition to the truck (and monster) shelves." -School Library Journal on Monster Trucks"Humorous digital illustrations show colorful vehicles and nonscary monsters-they aren't out to get anyone!-as they cheerfully go about their tasks, while the rhyming text bounces jauntily along, much like one of these vehicles might. For bedtime or for storytime, these monsters are here." -Booklist on Monster Trucks
