I regret that I have but five stars to give this book. I want to give it seven. This is a super-fun, super-awesome book that will be the read-a-loud favorite of anyone who picks it up. The words are catchy and the illustrations are stellar. My only worry is that it gets pigeon-holed as a Halloween book....trust me, any day / any time is the perfect time for this book. You will love it!

Perfect book for Halloween and ANYTIME! Halloween is my favorite time of year! And I love picture books!! This beautifully illustrated story is so much fun to read. I feel this will be one of those books that causes tons of audience participation if read more than once. It has some great words that I can just hear little ones shouting... STOMP, GRUMBLE, HOWL... and fun new words to maybe learn... GUMPTION and PLUCK! Tons of arts & craft ideas could be used with this book. This book will get ...more

While waiting at the library today, I read through some children's books that my grandson was checking out. What can you say about a book that is all about monster trucks...real monster trucks since it's written with a Halloween theme. I absolutely loved the story and the great illustrations.

Rhyming text about Halloween and the monster trucks that come to party. All done in dark colors to show nighttime and the colorful trucks like Frankentruck. Kids will love this colorful book with few words and rhyming theme.

Cute and a tiny bit creepy. A great choice for Halloween for younger kids. I loved the “monster” trucks and the VW bus who joins in the race. Great illustration. My son commented, “It looks like they really are going fast!”

These monster trucks are illustrated to look like real monsters, making them truly monster trucks. They are in a race, and joining them is a little blue bus not at all like them. She's determined to win the race. Bright and expressive illustrations make this action story fun to read.

This is Gavin's absolute favorite book. He makes me read it two times per night *at least* and I don't mind because the story and illustrations are excellent!

Now this is a monster book for those boys and rowdy girls out there. Wonderful illustrations and a cute story to go along with it. I have to say, I was not expecting that ending. Super cute!

A silly rhyming story about "monster" trucks that are chasing a little blue bus. Kids will enjoy watching the race in action.

This was a huge hit with the kindergarteners. It was great for Halloween, but you could read it at any time of the year.

A cute rhyming book with colorful pictures. An excellent candidate for storytime: few words per page, truck noises, and a fun story with a slight twist at the end.

Frankentruck, Werewolf Truck, Zombie Truck, Ghost Truck, and Vampire Truck smash and race against each other, and a little blue bus, in this fun to read rhyming story.

This seemed very visually repetitive to me, I had a hard time engaging with the story because each page felt the same.

Hanna-Barbera could have made a mint with this concept! Cool, funny, and colorful idea will get kids' attention.
