Izzy the ice-cream truck is doing everything he can think of to make himself dizzy, but nothing seems to be working as well as he’d like. Among other attempts, Izzy goes through the car wash, gets covered in suds, and spins himself in circles. In all his efforts, he gets in a tizzy, feels whizzy and fizzy…but is Izzy ever dizzy?

Delightful rhythm and rhymes that have great sound repetition for a beginning reader, and a delightful twist at the end. With its usual action-packed illustrations, Dizzy Izzy thinks he's a solid entry to the series. Is he? (Yes.)

I am big fan of Jon Scieszka and love his books. His Trucktown series is extremely popular among little boys. The pictures are colorful and bright and the stories are just as good.

My nephew is a big fan of this series and has the hardcover Trucktown books as well as several of the beginner readers. He is only 4 and isn't reading yet but he loves them so much I bought him a few new ones for the holidays this year.

The story is fun, the vocabulary nicely limited, and the illustrations silly. It would make a good readaloud with the tongue-twister like works but is also appropriate for early readers. Maybe it would be fun for a child to try reading to an adult.

I really like this series for boys as they begin to read. They are silly and action packed. With simple repetitive words.

Fun rhymes - too young for Nicholas and too old for Matthew to be a true hit for us.
