The monster trucks are back and they're still big, just like kids love them. Monster Trucks is an in-your-face book about the eye-popping behemoths that attract more than four million Monster Jam fans every year to sold-out stadiums in the United States, Canada and Europe. Superfans dress up in the painted designs of their hero truck, pack the seats, and add to the noise. Monster trucks are their superheroes. On wheels. Very, very BIG wheels. First published in 2012 as part of the Mighty Machines series, this new release has more pages and is as big and bold in color and content as the roaring monsters that crush cars, jump in the air, and do wheelies, spins and tricks. Large type describes the nuts and bolts of monster trucks, literally: how they are made, what makes them safe, and exactly how impressively big and tall and wide and fat they are. But the kick for monster truck fans are the pages and pages of the most famous monster trucks: Monster Medic, Thundertrax, Maximum Destruction, Jurassic Attack, Raminator, Grim Reaper and more. With a quiz to test monster truck know-how and activities to keep the fun going, plus a glossary of terms, Monster Trucks is perfect for kids to enjoy alone or with other monster truck superfans.
