A big city garbage truck makes its nighttime rounds, consuming everything from apple cores and banana peels to leftover ziti with zucchini.
While New York City sleeps, something zips around the streets eating trash. This playful romp chronicles the life and times of a wry--and stinky--garbage truck. Accompanied by watercolor-and-ink illustrations, this popular picture book was named one of the Best Children's Books 2002 by Publishers Weekly, as well as a New York Times Notable Book for 2002.
