KIRKUS REVIEW

On the ground, in the water, or through the air, here comes a parade of spread-filling trucks, boats, and other vehicles, each piloted by a smiling animal. The titular duck drives a dump truck, a “cab crab” waves from the window of a yellow taxi, a “blimp chimp” steers a purple airship, and other creatures ride on or in a tow truck, a motorcycle, a submarine, and more. Rex colors each machine in glowing primaries, suspends them against bright monochrome backgrounds, and adds just enough detail to tempt young viewers to linger lovingly. Printed on stiff paper, these mighty machines will rivet fans of all things big, noisy, and on the go. (Picture book. 3-5)
