Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Steve Buscemi

Children Ages 4-6 • 18 min. • Unabridged • © 2008

With a digger in back and a bucket up front, there’s not a task this backhoe doesn't find "as easy as (mud) pie." Following a celebrated line of McMullan hard-working vehicles (a tugboat and a garbage truck), this dude is ready for duty—whether scooping up, dumping in, pulling out, or cleaning up. Steve Buscemi narrates with gusto, delighting in the escapades of this vehicle. His boisterous enthusiasm is in perfect sync with the text—both the words and the illustrations. Jaunty music underscores the animated adventures. The recording includes an interview with the McMullans, who share tidbits about the creation of the story. A.R.
