about this item

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 planecan 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!
Illustrations and rhyming text show that a crane can lift anything from a load of steel to a cow.
