Volume book: Full version
A dump truck and a boy are a perfect combination. All they need is a bit of dirt. But where do you find dirt if you live in an apartment seven floors above the ground? That is Philip’s problem — a problem he shares with thousands of boys. Philip does think of some ingenious ways of getting dirt, but he meets with adult disapproval at every turn. The unique and happy solution to his problem finally comes from Mr. Neep, the doorman. Mr. Neep’s solution is as clever and delightful as the whole story of Philip and his truck. Colorful illustrations by Arnold Dobrin show exactly how the city looks to a small boy who lives in it.
