Joy Keller

MONSTER TRUCKS (Henry Holt Books for Young Readers; Misa Saburi, illustrator)

Monster TrucksJoy Keller isn’t a monster, but she does have experience driving trucks on a blueberry farm. She currently teaches elementary students and lives in Fairport, New York, with her husband, two children, three cats, and a bearded dragon. Her first book, MONSTER TRUCKS, is a picture book about monsters and the vehicles that match their personalities, from the skeleton crew that fixes roads (no sweat, they’re only bones) to the werewolf who digs, digs, digs to the ogre who loves to pummel and wreck, and more.

"Debut author Keller gets plenty of mileage from the titular pun, playfully matching monsters to the appropriate truck." Publishers Weekly
