Wragg’s acrylic-and-digital illustrations are sufficiently dark and creepy, filled with greens, purples, and yellows, and the anthropomorphized trucks truly suit their names. Monster-truck fans won’t want to miss this Halloween showdown.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

“Monster-truck fans won’t want to miss this Halloween showdown.” Kirkus

“Full-throttle Halloween fun.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Readers will delight in this lively read-aloud story with a clever and surprising twist at the end—perfect for Halloween and year-round!

Ready, set, go! The monster truck race is on in this frightfully delightful picture book. On a spooky speedway, Monster Trucks moan! Monster Trucks grumble! Monster Trucks groan!

Join Frankentruck, Zombie Truck, Ghost Truck, and more as they race to the finish line. But one of these trucks isn’t quite who you think.

“In the energetic rhyming text…the action never stops.” The Horn Book

“A quick seasonal storytime selection that is sure to be popular around Halloween. Monstrous fun!” School Library Journal
