Adult Reader Reaction: It's just fun to read.

Pros: There are lots of great photos of trucks in action, and a sure-fire hit for any kid who likes trucks.

Cons: The illustration of the flatbed truck shows the space shuttle Challenger being towed to its launch. And yes, I did get asked, "Is that still flying?"
