"Rosenthal's drawings feel like a contemporary take on [Virginia Lee] Burton's spirit." —The New York Times Book Review

"Children ages 3–7 will rejoice as in Marc Rosenthal's retro illustrations the little plow surges into action, rays of purposeful energy shooting off his red chassis." —The Wall Street Journal

"Delightful, retro artwork and clever text offer another tribute to teamwork and friendship...Three dynamic duos: Gus and Walt; Sue and Mo; Verdick and Rosenthal." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Small Walt befriends a tow truck when he comes across a car in need of help in this irresistible companion to Small Walt, which Kirkus Reviews called "charming and endearing" in a starred review.
We're Gus and Walt
We plow and we salt
We clear the snow so the
Cars can go!

A bitter blizzard. A snowbound town. When a car skids off the road, Small Walt and Gus might not have what it takes to save the day on their own. But who does? Mo the Tow to the rescue!

When we need a tow,
We call on Mo...
We can depend
On our new friend!


Text filled with onomatopoeia and Walt's affirming chants make this story about friendship and accepting help from others a real winner.
