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.

If your child dreams of being a trash collector then this is the book for you. Never has a book about trash been so groovy.

For for preschoolers and Kindergarten, this tell chronicles the day of Mr. Gilly the Garbage Man who picks up the trash in trashy town with a great repetitive refrain throughout the story. Great for a read-aloud!
