Editorial Reviews

"Low's artwork is stunning, using thick brushstrokes and rich colors and shadows to re-create detailed city and suburban scenes-readers will want to linger on each spread." -School Library Journal on Trucks to the Rescue!"Low demonstrates how five powerful trucks save the day in a richly illustrated board book with a cause-and-effect cadence. In alternating spreads, Low presents a problem ("A pipe is broken-flooded street") then reveals the truck that can fix it ("Vacuum truck to the rescue!") in lines that all but demand to be shouted." -Publishers Weekly on Trucks to the Rescue!"The richly colored pages of Machines Go To Work probably could not be more exactly calibrated to entrance the vehicle-oriented, 2-to-6-year-old male demographic." - The Wall Street Journal on Machines Go To Work"Let these machines do all the work; the reading about them is pure pleasure." -The Horn Book, starred review, on Machines Go To Work"Thoughtful design, dynamic art, and solid information make this a standout!" -Booklist, starred review, on Machines Go To Work in the City
