Dolls That Drive Trucks

h1 August 22nd, 2018 by jules


I’ve a review over at BookPage of Ann Stott’s Want to Play Trucks? (Candlewick, August 2018), illustrated by Bob Graham. It’s a picture book about the dynamics — and compromises — of sandbox-play.

That is here. And today here at 7-Imp I’ve got a bit of art from the book.



“Jack and Alex meet almost every morning
in the sandbox at Atwood playground.”

One comment to “Dolls That Drive Trucks”

  1. Ah, the art of the compromise. I love this concept. Also, there really are a lot of boys-play-with-dolls books now… but when I was babysitting a little boy who did, people acted like he honestly was the only boy in the world who did. That was… weird. I never knew what to say.

    Adult me looks back and glowers at all of the people with commentary.
