"Talk about your meals on wheels!" A convoy of comic food trucks is heading your way, serving up a mouthful of good eats with a side of humor and verse. They've got everything from french fries to falafel.

About the Author

Like many kids raised in the 70's, Mark was influenced at an early age by Star Wars and comic books. Unlike many kids, he grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, its neon and glitz looming over the city. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and currently lives and works in the Los Angeles area with his wife, artist Esther Pearl Watson, their daughter Lili and Mr. Pickles, a lovely French Bulldog.



Praise For Food Trucks!

"A tasty treat on trucks and takeout."
—Kirkus

"There's plenty of personality in Todd's quirky fleet of trucks."
—Publishers Weekly

"Readers will be inspired to write a poem or design a food truck for a favorite food that's 'rib-stickin', finger-lickin', or toothpick-needin'."
—School Library Journal

"What will draw in ravenous readers are Todd's pen-and-ink illustrations: busy, thick-lined depictions of each heavily themed vehicle, each popping with the kind of detail that will make kids wish there were toy versions."
