About the Book

Fans of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and I Stink! will love this rhythmic and lively picture book from the popular creators of Trashy Town.

With a turn of his crane and a swing of his wrecking ball, Mr. Gilly knocks down the old buildings. He smashes through brick and wood. He crashes through stone and glass. Then, with a push from his bulldozer, Mr. Gilly cleans it all up to make room for something brand-new!

Featuring lively text from Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha and dynamic art from acclaimed illustrator Dan Yaccarino, Smashy Town is a bouncy read-aloud that will delight young vehicle lovers.

[M]ade to be read aloud and will help the youngest readers channel their overabundant energy in a controlled, maybe even productive, manner. — Booklist

This rollicking book will bring the house down. — Horn Book Magazine

A delightful follow-up that can find a spot in any “Things That Go” collections, perfect for fans of construction stories and Trashy Town. — School Library Journal

SMASHY TOWN is a delightful hit for young readers, particularly avid construction vehicle fans. From the rhythmic text to the fun details, this is a book with high appeal for toddlers/preschoolers. — YABC
