Now Clarence has a secret: Water turns him into MIGHTY TRUCK!</p> <p>Everyone has a job to do in Axleburg. Stella's job is to be a news chopper and fly high in the sky to loudly report what she sees. But Stella is loud all the time, and Clarence cannot stand it!</p> <p>Clarence and his friends teach Stella to use her inside voice by speaking wheely softly and only letting her engines purr. Stella learns to use her inside voice, only she uses it outside, too! When Stella is too quiet to report the traffic on the morning rush, there's only one truck who can turn up the volume and save the day: Mighty Truck!</p> <p>Mighty Truck: Traffic Tie-Up is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it's perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.</p>

Horn Book Review

Clarence, the superheroic picture-book truck, returns in these charming early readers. Clarence makes short work of his farm chores by secretly transforming himself into a super vehicle (Farm); he teaches news chopper Stella when to use her outdoor and indoor voices (Traffic); and he babysits for energetic truck-tots (Zip). Cummings's signature chunk-tastic art is, yes, super. [Review covers these I Can Read Book titles: Mighty Truck: On the Farm, Mighty Truck: The Traffic Tie-Up, and Mighty Truck: Zip and Beep.] (c) Copyright 2019.
