I love Jon Scieszka's books and so do my grandchildren. I think these books are just plain fun to read.

My four year old son loves this series of books. The art work is great, and the truck characters are great. He is always asking when he can get another one of the books in this series.

My 6 year old son recently borrowed this book from our local library.

The book revolves around Big Rig. While his friends are collecting items, Big Rig comes through and knocks the items down. Ends up, they were collecting items to build him a birthday cake. They give him the cake and of course he smashes it too.

My son thought that Big Rig was really mean. Which is what the story is suppose to show him as, the bully. The bad thing is, the book just ends with no lesson that bullying is bad. It is just passed off that that is what Big Rig does, no one questions it, nothing is said or done, they just go on their marry way. I used the book to explain that bullying is bad and that his friends should have explained to him that what he was doing was wrong. I understand that Big Rig loves to smash and crash, but when it comes to the point of being a bully, a lesson should be learned.

There are several repetitive words, which helps with new readers, but there were several words that were a little "big" for beginner readers as well. Colorful illustrations. My son did need some help with several of the words.

This was our first Trucktown book. I don't know if not reading other books in the series will help, but will be giving the series another chance.

I haven't read any other Trucktown books, so maybe I'm not understanding the whole relationship between this Big Rig character and the other trucks. That said, I don't see how the author could justify this story. It tells in its brief way of the various trucks performing different tasks, and of how the Big Rig comes barreling through with a menacing expression and smashes everything they do. At the end, with pained and shocked "facial" expressions, the other vehicles tell him to stop, that it was all to prepare for his birthday. To which he replies that this is his best birthday ever as he comes roaring through the last of their creations, while wearing the same homicidal leer he had before.

When I read it to my son, we sat staring at that last page and boggling at the ending. No guilt for wrecking everything they did for him? Not so much as a natural consequence to show the readers that maybe bullying is a negative thing? The other vehicles didn't even smile at the end to suggest that maybe they had planned for him to smash everything because he's like that... I mean, maybe they just knew him and accepted him. No, the book is called Zoom Zoom BULLY, and the other characters looked hurt and terrified as he roared towards his final act of destruction, after which there was no consequence at all. What message is that supposed to send? I mean, this is a little kids book. My son is 6. He needs books like this to show him clearly that if he were to try bullying kids, they would not respond by preparing a lavish birthday party where he would be able to go on a violent berserker rampage. It's just a little book, there's not much room, but they could have managed that, at least.

We actually bought this book through our school from Scholastic. I think they need to take another look at the books they provide. There are so many cute, clever, and nicely written little readers. It makes no sense to waste paper on ill-conceived stories that send negative messages.

Very simplistic story with only one sentence per page. Big Rig destroys the other trucks' property. The other trucks lament that he is a bully but proceed with a birthday celebration for him. Their gift is a creation from crates and tires, which he proceeds to smash with glee. When I read it to them, my boys were dumb-founded at the end. Big Rig was a bully, and there was no lesson of correction or redemption. Even my toddler who loves trucks did not like this book! Big Rig looks scary while the other trucks in the story have sad faces throughout the mayhem. I love building my sons' book collection, and I realized that I did not even want to keep this one on the shelf. Definitely pass on this one...

I bought this book only because my 5-year-old son loves trucks, and because he's just beginning to read. He's in the habit of "reading" himself to sleep each night after I've tucked him in, and I thought he'd enjoy having a book he could actually read every word of himself. He also really enjoys David Shannon's portrayal of the trucks in Trucktown. For these reasons I've given is three stars and not less.

Be warned: there is just barely a story line, and each page contains approximately zero to three words, so it's not for a child who's already reading, or for an adult reading to a child. And, as at least one other parent mentioned, the story definitely sends children a strange and negative message about bullying. When my son and I read this book together, I used it as a way to discuss what bullying is and how it makes others feel, and the consequences of bullying. Since I'm not thrilled with the content of this book it will most likely be removed from our collection once my son moves on to more difficult reading (which won't be long, since, like I said, this book contains very few words).

I agree with the other posts regarding the moral of the story. It's questionable, at best. My son loves it, though, and has picked up the sight words "zoom" and "boom" throught the effective use of repetition and imagery. As always, the illustrations are wonderful. We talked about the ending and about how Big Rig is "mean" and my son gets that it's not ok despite the deficiencies in the plot.
My grandson loves the Trucktown books, but I've put this one away. Big Rig is a bully who loves to smash and crash his friends' things. He gets rewarded with a birthday cake from his friends, which he proceeds to smash and crash. My grandson loved this book--matter of fact, he loved the whole idea of being a bully and smashing and crashing his friends' things. Sigh... No More Big Rig. Please don't do this to us again!
