Synopsis

Synopsis

What can a crane pick up . . . a truck?  
Yes, a truck! And a truck . . . And a truck . . .         
And a railroad car, if it gets stuck.

A truck, a train,
a car, a plane
can all be lifted with a crane.


From poet Rebecca Kai Dotlich and artist Mike Lowery comes a rollicking picture book about cranes—the kind that pick things up! We start with pipes and bricks and loads of steel and then move on to funny, whimsical objects: a cow, a ferris wheel, men in business suits, and an ancient mummy's case.  

With a rhyme that begs to be read aloud again and again, and quirky, exuberant illustrations, this book is sure to delight kids and parents alike. But watch out: Cranes pick UP—that's what they do! Look out, or a crane might pick up you!

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, July 23, 2012:
“…it’s clear that this machine lives in the best of all possible worlds: where happiness is busyness, calm competence prevails, and no job is too small. Sign us up.”
