Meet Mr. Gilly. He cleans up Trashy Town. There's trash at the pizza parlor, trash at the school, and trash at every house. It's a big job, but Mr. Gilly does it with a big truck, a big smile, and loads of style.

Trashy Town features a rhythmic, repeatable refrain that will have children clamoring for repeat readings. Dynamic art from acclaimed illustrator Dan Yaccarino puts the zip in Mr. Gilly's stride and adds style and charm to trash collection. Perfect for fans of all books about things that GO!

Dump it in, smash it down, drive around the Trashy Town!

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!
