Construction-equipment loving boys will adore this humourous twist on the classic nursery rhyme. Someone has done a lot of work building a house. Someone has been operating a cement mixer, driving a bulldozer, and using a forklift to build walls, frame windows, and nail down a roof. Someone has built a big, strong home for Jack. But is this the house that Jack built? One tired puppy dog disagrees in this story about getting what you work for.
“This book was built for those youngsters with a jones for trucks and other big wheels, and it delivers in spades.”—Kirkus Reviews
“A wonderful twist on an age-old rhyme. . . . This beguiling book will be a hit both at storytimes and in circulating collections, for those who really want to know how Jack’s house got built.”—School Library Journal
