by Kate and Jim McMullan
A hungry and excited New
York City garbage truck shares a
delightfully disgusting ABC list of the disgusting items that he
devours each day---dirty
diapers, fish heads, ugly underpants...
Oh how we love this book! The artwork is as hilarious as the text. Your students will be in stitches.
Although...just to clarify, the ABC component is just one part of the book (when he explains what he ate). It's not the main purpose or structure of the book.
If you like this title, be sure to check out McMullan's other
Dirty and I'm
Mighty. It's the same concept, just with different personalities. :)
