Was that a flash of lightning? A rumble of thunder?
Better get ready–there’s a new crew in town!
As Bulldozer piles up clouds and Tanker Truck hauls the rain, the whole Thunder Truck gang works together to build a tremendous storm.
Brimming with energy and fun, this cheerful bedtime story is perfect for snuggling, no matter the weather.
Cheryl Klein’s first book, The Commuters: A Novel of Intersections, won City Works Press’ Ben Reitman Award. Her novel Lilac Mines was published by Manic D Press in 2009. She writes and edits for MUTHA Magazine (muthamagazine.com) and blogs about the intersection of life, art, and carbohydrates at breadandbread.blogspot.com.
I love books — reading them, holding them, even smelling them! Growing up in the Midwest, my family would spend summers at our local public library. Later, I was lucky enough to study at the medieval University of Oxford, where there are so many books that you can catch their scent rising up from vents in the sidewalks.
I now teach medieval history at the University of Texas at Arlington, and I incorporate the history of books and “book making” into my classes whenever I can. As you might be able to tell from my books (there are more to come after Brother Hugo and the Bear!), I also love to share this history with younger readers, as well.
Mike Boldt has been my name
for quite a few years.
Some people call me an Author / Illustrator.
I’ve been called worse.
I still enjoy cartoons.
I like ice cream a lot.
I‘ve drawn since I was young.
I read (picture) books.
I like to write & draw them too.
I’m amazed and grateful every day this is my job.
