Lisa, I'm so honored that you included my MONSTERS ON MACHINES on your construction list. When other toddlers were in their sandboxes, I got to sit on my dad's lap on a backhoe. I doodled house designs while others colored. I even got high rides on the front end loader.

The Publisher's Weekly starred review begins with "Lund's rhyming story, about a team of ghoulish monsters who ride bulldozers and cranes, has just about everything a child could hope for, from fantastical characters to vehicles, from muck and mud to screams and shouts to monsteroni and cheese..."

Learn more about me and my family at I always answer emails from kiddos and those who care for them.
