Dump Trucks by Linda D. Williams

My book is non-fiction. One fact about dump trucks is that some have tires that are bigger than people! I like that dump trucks are mighty machines. One thing I learned is that some dump trucks are off-road dump trucks because they are bigger than the lines on a road. Dump trucks can drive on uneven ground. Dump trucks can carry the weight of many elephants. There are 21 pages.

Trains by Matt Doeden

Trains drive on railroad tracks. Train engines and train cars have metal wheels. A locomotive is the engine of a train. Trains have very loud whistles to warn people that a train is coming. People can use a train to get to a place farther from your home than you can get to in a car in one day. They can eat and sleep on the train.

The Everafter War by Michael Buckley

The Everafter War is book 7 in 9 books. Everafters are fairy-tale characters, such as Snow White. In this book, Everafters are fighting. Bad Everafters are called the Scarlet Hand. Very few Everafters are good.
My favorite part is when the soldiers come back with Prince Charming on their shoulders, because they destoryed an important place for the Scarlet Hand. I would suggest starting at the begging with book one:
The Fairy-Tale Detectives.
