Dumpy the Dumptruck by Julie Andrews Edwards, Emma Walton Hamilton

One sunny day on Merryhill Farm, all the trucks are busily toiling,including Trundle the Tractor and Bee-Bee the Backhoe. All, that is, except forone rusty old forgotten fellow: Dumpy the Dump Truck. Relegated to the weedsbehind the barn, Dumpy has been gathering dust and mouse nests for a long time.And it looks like the end is near when Farmer Barnes decides its time for theold barn to come down, and Dumpy to be, well, dumped. But I love Dumpy, saysCharlie, the farmers son. Its so sad to get rid of something you love just tomake room for something new. His grandfather, Pop-Up, agrees, and before theyknow it, the two are up to their ears in grease, paint, and tools. But can theyfinish sprucing up Dumpy before the barn has to come down?Dumpy the Dump Truck is the first in a series about the trucks andtractors of Merryhill Farm by Julie Andrews Edwards (author of The Last of the Really GreatWhangdoodles and LittleBo: The Story of Bonnie Boadicea , and beloved star of MaryPoppins and The Sound of Music) and Emma Walton Hamilton. Loyalty,teamwork, and an ever-so-subtle message about the value of the elderly are atthe heart of this book. After all, Pop-Up isnt ready to be dumped yet either!Tony Waltons watercolors are filled with friendly-featured vehicles andpleasantly scratchy-looking farm animals and humans. If you like Dumpy, dont miss Dumpy at School! (Ages 4 to 7) --EmilieCoulter
