I Stink! (Hardcover)
|Follow a night in the life of a cool garbage truck with a bad attitude as he makes the rounds and picks up an A-to-Z list of stinky garbage.|
From the Publisher:
Know what I do at night while you're asleep? Eat your trash, that's what! See those bags? I smell breakfast!
With ten wide tires, one really big appetite, and an even bigger smell, this truck's got it all. His job? Eating your garbage and loving every stinky second of it!
And you thought nighttime was just for sleeping.
While New York City sleeps, something zips around the streets eating trash. This playful romp chronicles the life and times of a wry--and stinky--garbage truck. Accompanied by watercolor-and-ink illustrations, this popular picture book was named one of the Best Children's Books 2002 by Publishers Weekly, as well as a New York Times Notable Book for 2002.
"What preschool-aged boy could resist the terrific title or the ten-wheeled force behind this anthropomorphized garbage truck narrator....[A] superb design...." 03/01/2002 Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"It will easily become a favorite of younger readers." - Bruno Navasky 10/20/2002
