Review: SUPERTRUCK by Stephen Savage (C)

by Stephen Savage
Release date: January 6th, 2015
Published by: Roaring Brook Press (Macmillan)
Genre: Children's Picture Book
Format: Hardcover, eBook
Format read: ARC from the publisher


When the city is hit by a colossal snowstorm, only one superhero can save the day. 

But who is this mysterious hero, and why does he disappear once his job is done? 

Find out in this snowy tale about a little truck with a very big job, 
the second of Steve Savage's vehicle-based picture books.


In this charming little book, we learn about all the important and hardworking vehicles that move around our cities and towns, helping us in many ways, always getting their jobs done no matter what the season is. The fire truck puts out fires, the tow truck rescues cars... and the garbage truck, well, he just collects the trash.

But, who will help them all when a terrible blizzard storms in and the whole city has to come to a complete standstill??? SUPERTRUCK to the rescue!!!
All the trucks, big and small, are stuck and cannot complete their jobs. But Supertruck puts on his plow and digs the whole city out! The other trucks are so grateful... and wonder, who is this marvelous vehicle?

First of all, the cuteness starts with brightly colored and captivating illustrations. Each page is filled to the brim with minimalist drawings and colors, giving each vehicle its most known quality shape and color to stand out and easily be identifiable.
Second, the simple storyline is quite engaging. After the first few reads, my one year old scramble off to go find his trucks - not only did we match most of them to the pictures in the book, but we also played and made sure to give Supertruck time to cover his identity, just like Superman. I adore books that encourage my kids to get up and play while reading it!
And lastly, who doesn't love a good superhero!!!

A sweet book for the little superhero/comic book lover in your family! 

*An ARC copy was sent to me from the publisher for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
