I dump it in
I smash it down
I drive around the trashy town

Meet Mr. Gilly. He cleans up Trashy Town. He does it with a big smile and a big truck--which is sure to make him a hero with all the children in the neighborhood. David Clemesha and Andrea Zimmerman have created a rhythmic, repeatable refrain that will roll off the lips of every child. Dan Yaccarino's dynamic art puts the zip in Mr. Gilly's stride and adds style and charm to trash collection.

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.
