Trashy Town by Andrea Zimmerman, David Clemesha, and illustrated by Dan Yaccarino

“I dump it in
I smash it down
I drive around the trashy town”

Meet Mr. Gilly. He cleans up Trashy Town. He does it with a big smile and a big truck–which is sure to make him a hero with all the children in the neighborhood. David Clemesha and Andrea Zimmerman have created a rhythmic, repeatable refrain that will roll off the lips of every child. Dan Yaccarino’s dynamic art puts the zip in Mr. Gilly’s stride and adds style and charm to trash collection.

Trashy Town was a book I initially found thanks to Eric from Happy Birthday Author and his birthday post with the author Andrea Zimmerman. I’m so glad he wrote about it because it’s not only a fantastic post, but the book was perfect for the Turkeybird! Definitely great for truck loving kiddos!

  1. I love this.
    What a great way to explain it to kids.

  2. What a fun idea (although as a grotty-minded adult, I did have a slightly different image of “trashy” town in mind!)
