Meet Mr. Gilly. He cleans up Trashy Town. There’s trash at the pizza parlor, trash at the school, and trash at every house. It’s a big job, but Mr. Gilly does it with a big truck, a big smile, and loads of style.

Trashy Town features a rhythmic, repeatable refrain that will have children clamoring for repeat readings. Dynamic art from acclaimed illustrator Dan Yaccarino puts the zip in Mr. Gilly’s stride and adds style and charm to trash collection. Perfect for fans of all books about things that GO!

Dump it in, smash it down, drive around the Trashy Town!

From Our Editors

In Trashy Town the town hero is a garbage collector with a mission: He wants to rid the streets of all the garbage. As he rides around in his big truck doing this big job, he sings a catchy tune: Dump it in, smash it down and drive around the Trashy Town! Kids love Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha’s catchy rhythms and Dan Yaccarino’s colourful illustrations.
