Review
Books for Youth, For the Young: Ages 3-5. Duck drives along the road--not exactly looking where he's driving--when his tire hits a rock, landing his truck in the mud. Or, as the rhyming text says it, "This is the rock struck by the truck / and this is the muck / where the truck becomes stuck." Frog offers to push, then Sheep lends a hand, and finally Goat comes by with a plan that frees the truck. Carefree Duck drives off without a backward glance, though Frog, Sheep, and Goat remain stuck in the muck. The text rolls along with its thumping rhymes, while the large-scale ink-and-watercolor illustrations quietly steal the show. Deftly personified through expression and gesture, the animal characters speak through a visual convention that even young children know well: the cartoon. A pleasing picture book that invites even prereaders to share the joke. ((Reviewed December 15, 1999)) -- Carolyn Phelan
