He'll keep trying until he gets it just right and it's time for one more mixing: a bubble bath.

Reviews

Savage ( Supertruck ) creates a sunny cast of vehicular characters, and his brief text is equally upbeat, punctuated by fun repetition ( presto! is also used ironically to herald the cement mixer s mishaps), and a play on words involving mix-up and mixed up. Publishers Weekly, starred The book's thematic elements trucks and food and mastery of a skill are well-pitched to a very young audience. Kirkus Reviews This tale s tight plot and winsome characters serve the dual purpose of exploring the world of vehicles and emphasizing the rewards of perseverance. A surefire storytime selection. School Library Journal An imaginative picture book for young truck fans to enjoy. Booklist
