More About This Title Minton Goes Trucking


Minton the spotty salamander has leapt out of The Hottest Boy Who Ever Lived to have his own adventures. Minton loves things that move—boats, planes, cars, and trucks. And he always finds just what he needs to make these vehicles. After each story, there are directions for making Minton’s favorite modes of transportation out of everyday kitchen materials such as margarine tubs, plastic bottles, corks, and skewers.

After barely avoiding disaster in his car adventure, Minton decides to be a truck driver. And when there’s sand to move and building to be done, Minton and Turtle are ready for a hard day’s work. Minton makes a dump truck so he can work on a building site and uses it to create a wonderful and enormous sand construction.
