More About The Little Snowplow by Lora Koehler; Jake Parker
 
 
 
Overview
The #1 "New York Times" bestseller
Big trucks may brag and roar, but small and steadfast wins the day in this cheerful story with timeless appeal.
On the Mighty Mountain Road Crew, the trucks come in one size: BIG. That is, until the little snowplow joins the crew. None of the other trucks think that the little snowplow can handle the big storms, but "he" knows that he can do it and just to be sure, he trains hard, pushing loads of gravel, pulling blocks of concrete, and doing plow lifts to get ready. But when a blizzard arrives, will the little snowplow s training be enough to clear the streets and handle unexpected trouble? Taking its place beside classics such as "The Little Engine That Could "and "Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, "this tale of a plucky little plow will find a clear path to readers hearts."

When a small blue snowplow joins the Mighty Mountain Road Crew, the larger trucks doubt his abilities. It might be too much for a little snowplow. Wed probably have to help, says one of the seasoned trucks, which have headlights for eyes and grilles for mouths. But the snowplow trains hard, clearing streams, pushing fall leaves, and hauling concrete blocks. When a blizzard arrives, he singlehandedly digs a dump truck out from underneath an avalanche and pulls it free. Debut author Koehler fills her story with vehicular action that will appeal to young gearheads (The little snowplow plunged his plow into the avalanche debris), while Parkers illustrations balance cutely characterized trucks with mid-blizzard drama. Ages 37. Illustrators agent: Judith Hansen, Hansen Literary Agency. (Oct.)
