The Mixed-Up Truck by Stephen Savage

lt's Cement Mixer's first day on the job and he doesn't want to make any mistakes. How can he help the other trucks on the construction site? By mixing some powdery white cement, of course! He mixes it up, adds a little water, and presto ...a cake?! He must have mixed flour instead of cement. Not to worry, he'll try again ...and presto! Frosting?! 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
