With simple narrative sentences and vibrant, detailed artwork, these books put kids behind the wheels of some formidable machines. The vehicles they see every day --- in the city or in the country --- are brought to life on each appealing page.

Two new volumes in the Wheels at Work series (In the City, In the Country) are for youngsters ready for the next step in big-vehicle obsessions. Kilby offers up a variety of scenarios and unique details about working machines, without talking down to his audience. as the author introduces each truck, the lettering appears in bold type, making it pop out of the text. The acrylic illustrations are sophisticated, realistic, and beautiful. No frivolities here -- this pair will be the ultimate ride for the young expert of all things wheeled.
