“This book has it all: text which flows easily, an old truck that can talk and has feelings, lots of action linked with a natural disaster, humour, bonus pages of factual information and gorgeous illustrations. And it is all based on a calamity that occurred here in New Zealand … a fantastic story.” 
- Nadine Malloy, Remarkables Primary School reviewing for The School Journal, Read NZ
