A rhyming read-aloud perfect for preschoolers

At a yard sale with his mom, among the toys for sale, Chuck spots a fire truck. It only costs a buck—what luck! Mom buys Chuck the truck, and he loves everything about it. At home, he plays with it nonstop: in the sandbox, the yard, and the mud. But after bath time, once Chuck is squeaky clean, his fire truck is nowhere to be seen!

Dumbstruck, Chuck hunts all over the house. Where is his truck?! Was it sucked up into the vacuum, now stuck? Finally, Chuck and his truck are reunited, just in time for bed.

Told not in verse but with plenty of fun rhyme and repetition, this story’s bright, cartoon-like art conveys Chuck’s full range of emotions. With humor and warmth, it’s a lovable read-aloud that captures a child’s joy for their favorite toy.

ANNIKA DUNKLEE was born in Uppsala, Sweden, to a Scottish father and a Swedish mother. She is the award-winning author of many books, including the New York Times Best Illustrated My Name Is Elizabeth!, Me, Too! and Me, Me, Me. When she’s not writing, she’s busy eating cheese. She currently resides in Toronto, Ontario with her husband, two teens, a puppy and a cockatiel.

CATHON left Québec City in 2010 to study visual arts and media at the Université du Québec à Montréal. Since then, she has devoted herself to comics and illustration. Cathon now publishes picture books and comics with Pow Pow, La Pastèque, Comme des géants, Bayard, and Courte Échelle. She lives in Montreal, Quebec.
