In this bright and action-packed board book, favorite trucks are here to save the day!
Whether it's a flat tire or a kitten stuck in a tree, trucks come to the rescue in this board book. Kids will love repeating the refrain "to the rescue!" with each different truck—fire truck, vacuum truck, tow truck, and more. William Low's characteristically beautiful art brings these big machines to life.

Praise For Trucks to the Rescue!…
"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
