School Library Journal - 01/01/2014 PreS-Gr 1—Axel, a monster truck, takes center stage in this beginning reader. There are plenty of vrooms, zooms, bumps, and bangs as he ploughs through town, flies off mountain trails, collects rocks sailing through the air and delivers them to a dump, and fills up with gas before returning home. Cheerful cartoons capture the action throughout. Similar in spirit to "Jon Scieszka's Trucktown" series (S & S), these books will appeal to the same readership-newly independent readers who can't get enough of humanlike vehicles out for adventure. As an added bonus, back matter features an ample array of labeled truck parts and garage tools.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
