Tons of Trucks
in every color, shape, and size!
Scoop and dig trucks!"
Tons of Trucks is an interactive rhyming truck book, from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children's Books, released July, 2012.
Big trucks, small trucks, dump trucks, tow trucks, and all kinds of other trucks can be found in this playful touch-and-move book. A backhoe scoops and digs, a cement truck spins, a tar truck oozes sticky tar, and tabs pull up and out to reveal surprises.The trucks eventually slow down for a rest, where little hands can lift the flaps to see animals snuggling up for sleepy-time—under a rising moon. Filled with vibrant artand adorable characters, this book gives a child everything he’s looking for when he presses his face against the fence at a construction site!
Tons of Trucks received a Letter of Commendation from the 2008 SCBWI Barbara Karlin Grant for Picture Book Writing.
Tons of Trucks is now available! Watch the animated trailer for some vehicle-moving fun.

Creative Madness Mama
"Great for lovers of trucks or even a preschool transportation unit study. My almost preschooler loves it. A good read for anytime to discover more, but also with a certain line this can even be a new favorite bedtime story. Definitely a good gift idea."
Books for kids blog
"Tons of Trucks gives toddler's digits something to do as these big and little movers scoop and scoot, lift and load, honk and haul. There are fire trucks that squirt, tar trucks that spread, milk trucks that m-o-o-ve, bigfoot mud trucks, and little red lift trucks, with plenty of surprises for little fingers to find."
"I like how Fliess created a book that doesn’t have your usual array of trucks. There are street sweepers, moving trucks, tar trucks (complete with “sticky tar”) and army crew trucks. Toddlers will delight in this fun, and engaging look at trucks."
