Praise for Supertruck

“*Secret identities, superheroes, and trucks. What more is there to say? . . . this trash-hauler is one super truck.” —The Horn Book, STARRED REVIEW

“*Just right for winter storytimes, this winning picture book will find an appreciate audience beyond just young truck lovers.” —Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

“*Savage exploits shapes and colors to create interesting imagery and atmospheric environments for the truck that show that collecting trash is just as heroic as powerfully plowing through snow. A serious treat for truck lovers.” —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
