Summary
Whether it's a flat tire or a fire, trucks come to the rescue in this board book. Kids will love repeating the refrain "to the rescue!" with each different truck--fire truck, dump truck, tow truck, and more. William Low reprises the trucks from Machines Go To Work and Machines Go To Work in the City; his characteristically beautiful art brings these big machines to life.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "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. The thickly painted scenes lavish attention on the mechanical details of the trucks, as well as on the workers who are just as integral to getting the job done: high up in a bucket truck, an electrical worker in a hard hat and sunglasses repairs a broken traffic light, and a pair of firefighters prep their truck's ladder for a classic kitten-in-a-tree scenario.
