"Who am I? I've got lights. Ten w-I-d-e tires. no A.C., not me...Know what I do at night while you're asleep? Eat your TRASH, that's what." So begins a fast-paced text about a cheerful, personified garbage truck hard at work. Children will almost be able to hear the scrunch and crunch of the A-B-Cs of refuse enumerated by this rackety raconteur who says, "Ah!" while gobbling "Apple cores Banana peels Candy wrappers Dirty diapers (yes, dirty diapers) Eggshells Fish heads Gobs and gobs of gum..." and much more. Yuck! A delightfully upbeat story about the very vehicle needed to get a sticky job done. Yay! Highly Commended, 2003 Charlotte Zolotow Award (Ages 2-6)
