That Ammi-Joan Paquette, she sure knows how to put together a bouncy, energetic picture book text that makes readers smile! (See: BUNNY BUS and GHOST IN THE HOUSE and its companion, ELF IN THE HOUSE.) Add in a spritz of her trademark can-do spirit, and you’ve got MUCKY TRUCK, a picture book in which a little truck gets stuck in the mud, and all his vehicle friends try to help but get stuck as well, resulting in a muddy good time.
Julia Sooy at Holt/Godwin snapped it up and matched it with the divine Elisa Ferro (represented by Tom Thorogood of Good Illustration), and it will be out in winter 2021, just in time for the spring thaw, of course!
