Written by Alexandra Penfold, Illustrated by Mike Dutton
A colorful, whimsical picture book about everyone’s favorite kitchens-on-wheels: food trucks!
Join the members of one family as they head to the Food Truck Fest! They gather their things, cross the bridge, and prepare for a fun-filled day. And as they get ready, the workers on the food trucks get ready, too—preparing, tasting, and traveling across the bridge to join all the other kitchens-on-wheels. With delicious free samples and cuisines from around the world, it’s a day of trying new things and having fun together!
Alexandra Penfold’s rollicking, rhyming text and Mike Dutton’s rich, dynamic illustrations make Food Truck Fest! the perfect story for kids who love things that go.
I liked that this book told the story from both the customer’s and the food trucker’s perspectives. The pictures are bright and full of interesting things to look at. The rhythm and rhymes are well done and add to the festival-like feeling. Students who like vehicles or have experiences ordering from food trucks will like this book.
