About the Author

Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification--in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator. His first job in children's books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK's Children's Division and was Managing Director of the children's mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.


In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martin's Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books--My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends--each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers; and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards. Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.

More About the Author

Roger Priddy is the creator of over two hundred best selling books for young children including Wipe Clean ABC, First 100 Words, and Fuzzy Bee.

When he was at school he couldn't decide between being a patisserie chef or going to art college. On the advice of his father he chose art college and trained as an illustrator before becoming a designer at Usborne Publishing.

Roger's love for children's early learning has led him to create some of the most successful children's non-fiction books, first at Dorling Kindersley (My First Word Book, Incredible Cross Sections and My First Cook Book) before he set up Priddy Books with St. Martins Press in New York where several of his books have sold over a million copies each including My Big Animal Book and Happy Baby Words.

In total he has sold over 65 million books worldwide and his books have been translated into over 30 languages.

He says "It is always rewarding to see a child enjoying and learning something from one of our books, especially the babies when you think it could be the first book they have ever seen.

I am very lucky to have a career where you get to think up fun ways to teach a kid how to write their letters and learn their first words whilst finding out about Dinosaurs at the same time!"

Roger lives with his wife Zena in London and Cork, Ireland (when it's not raining, which isn't very often!) They have four children Sam, Rose, Alannah and Gabriel (and a dog called Wallace) who have given him most of his best ideas for his books. He still loves baking bread and cakes!

There are no more than 40 actual trucks in this book. Many of the pictures are of non-truck vehicles, such as buses, motorcycles, a bicycle, various cars, trains, several boats, airplanes, and even a space shuttle. It is just fine as a book of 100 vehicles, but it is not a book of 100 trucks.

Our son is obsessed with trucks, which is why we bought him this book. And let me be very clear, he does indeed love this book. With that said, there is some serious false advertising going on here. 100 trucks huh? Why then are there cars, motorcycles, airplanes, and hot air balloons in this book? We are perplexed and would love an answer.

This book takes liberty with the definition of "trucks" since many of the pages include things like cars, boats, kayaks, airplanes, and hot air balloons. Still, my 14 month old truck obsessed son likes this book. It's smaller, so it's great for the car and can easily be carried into an appointment or restaurant to help keep my busy boy occupied. I'd much rather him page through a book than shove my smartphone in his face at every turn.

This is a perfect little book for my 2 year old, we own several of the larger board books, but this one he can easily carry around with him and read it when he finds his perfect place to sit. I like that it is slightly padded and soft on the outside and the pages are sturdy cardboard, so it will have lasting power in our home. Easy to throw into a diaper bag or my purse when we are out & about as well.

This represents my emotions as I navigated the bowels of this `novel' with my 120 month old child:

Pleased, Delighted, Awestruck, Uncertain, Perplexed, Incredulous, Exasperated, Appalled, Flabbergasted.

Traumatized.

Never before have I felt as much dismay as I did when I read this book, "First 100 Trucks" by Roger Priddy. Without giving too much of the plot away: The intro to the book starts off strong with beautiful and detailed pictures of trucks. Delivery trucks, Garbage trucks, Dump trucks all make a prompt introduction.

But I soon became suspicious when I begin to notice non-truck vehicle creeping in: Excavators, vans and buses. Then suddenly, Mr. Priddy introduces what can only be described as distinctly non-truck vehicles: Bicycles, motorcycles and ATV's! Completely forgoing the entire narrative, he then injects Monorail trains, Yachts and military-grade fighter jets. He concludes the book completely off topic with a Hot Air Balloon! The author must be full of hot air himself if he considers it appropriate to discuss a commercial dirigible in a book about trucks.

I have no idea where the author came up with these `examples,' but the members of my book club all agree that there is no way this manuscript was properly peer reviewed. The only thing more shocking than the content is the fact that there is absolutely NO source citation ANYWHERE in the 24 pages. How this book can then be classified as a learning tool points to a deeply flawed system, of which I won't even begin to delve into now.

The long term effects of reading this to my child are not yet fully realized, but I shudder to think of the implications. Just the other day my son, smiling brightly in his misguided ignorance, pointed to a commercial jet liner flying in the air and shouted, `Look Daddy! It's another truck!"

This book is down-right dangerous.

This is a great book for children who love trucks, tractors and other moving items. Even though the book is called first 100 trucks not all of the pictures are of trucks. Some are of tractors, ships, planes, motorcyles, etc. Even though the title is a little misleading, this is a fun book that your child will want to read over and over. The pictures are good quality and there are lots of colors in the book to help with teaching your child colors.

I have twin 16 month olds that are in to "cars!!", anything that has wheels is a car, so this was a great addition to our "first 100" books. These really are great books for 1 yr olds, they withstand quite a bit of abuse and it is fantastic watching the little ones gradually connect words with pictures and point them out when spoken. I purchased first 100 words first, and they loved it.

This book is hardly ever out of the hands of my almost 2 year old grandson. To say that he LOVES it would be an understatement. This book is terrific, it had real pictures of all sorts of trucks and cars and farm vehicles and with the name of the vehicle printed underneath. It is a great learning tool. The board book is almost indestructible.
