The best-selling Little Blue Truck is now available in Spanish! El camioncito Azul is a joyful cacophony of animal and truck sounds in verse that will have youngsters beeping and quacking—and begging for one more go-round! Along the way, readers see that it pays to be kind to others. Jill McElmurry’s gouache illustrations of wild-eyed farm animals and country roads are warm and wonderful, suiting the cheerfully rhyming text of Alice Schertle to a T. This Spanish translation by award-winning poet Isabel Campoy maintains the rhyme and charm of the original, and the sturdy board book pages are sure to withstand many riotous read-aloud sessions.

Alice Schertle is the acclaimed author of many children’s books, including William and Grandpa, recipient of the Christopher Award. Her poetry has been called “witty” (Kirkus Reviews), “vivid” (The Horn Book), and “unique” (ALA Booklist).

"Schertle's (All You Need for a Beach) rhyming stanzas are succinct, and she gives readers plenty of opportunities to chime in with animal and vehicle noises; colored, standout fonts highlight these sounds for extra effect. McElmurry's (Mad About Plaid) gouaches recall the heyday of Golden Books in their combination of vividness, naïveté and sweetness, and her rich palette achieves verisimilitude that is no less satisfying for being nostalgic."  --Publishers Weekly, starred review (4/28/08)
