Tell Your Friends:


In a far-off desert world remarkably similar to outback Australia, evolution has taken an unexpected turn. The dominant life form is a creature covered in fur but with living steel panels beneath. It gnaws on bones and sniffs lampposts but fills up on oil, brake fluid and petrol. And it's wonderfully clever with its wheels and wing mirrors ' able to do just about anything, in fact ' which is lucky since it hasn't got any arms or legs. It's an animal with an engine. Or is it a car with floppy ears and a wet nose? This is the world of TruckDogs.

  • Book Rating: 3/5

I wound up getting this selection thinking I was getting science fiction, I shortly realized it was a children's book. I thought I would listen anyway. I think it would be a good book for really little kids, but parents should use headphones because the narrator has a nails on the chalkboard quality to his voice . The book is probably much better in print because it offers pictures to show the dogs.
