PreS-Gr 2—Clarence is a superhero truck who zooms in as his alter ego, Mighty Truck, whenever there's an emergency. In fact, he's so busy, he barely has time to hang out with his best friend, Bruno. When Clarence's skills are called for yet again, to save an arena of Muddymania fans from a runaway vehicle, his secret is in peril, but his friendship remains steadfast. The dialogue here is sometimes tiresome ("I, uh, just remembered…"; "You should, like, thank Mighty Truck!") and the computer-generated images overly busy. Still, some children devour truck books, and this title will find fans among those who have graduated from Sallie Wolf and Andy Robert Davies's Truck Stuck.
VERDICT Consider for insatiable truckophiles. A workable addition.
