School Library Journal - 05/01/2014 Gr 1–3—Fourteen mouth-watering specialties are featured in this book—with specialized trucks to serve them up: a hamburger truck, a falafel truck, a sushi truck, and more. Each one appears on a spread, with a large, detailed, digitally created picture of the vehicle; a free-verse description of the food; and assorted facts or definitions displayed in "clouds." There is a National Cheeseburger Day (September 18), ancient Romans are believed to be the first to make a cooked bread-and-cheese sandwich, and pretzels are likely the world's oldest snack, signifying oneness when eaten at weddings. Pick a favorite from breakfast through dinner with a diversity of dishes from various cultures: a side of taters, couscous, grilled provolone, chowder, chicken tikka, or a bean burrito. There's also "Sprinkles," the cupcake truck, and "Ice Queen," the mobile server of a popular cold treat. Readers will be inspired to write a poem or design a truck for a favorite food that's "rib-stickin', finger-lickin', or toothpick-needin'." This is an unusual addition with possibilities for creative expression.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
