McToad likes Thursdays. Why? Because on every other day of the week, McToad mows Big Island, but on Thursdays, McToad mows Tiny Island.

To do so, he puts his mower on the back of a truck, which drives to a train, which goes to a helicopter, which flies to a boat, which uses a crane to put the lawn mower onto Tiny Island. There McToad mows and drinks some lemonade, and before you know it, it's time to turn around and go back home. But first, the mower has to get lifted by a crane, to get put back on a boat, which is lifted by a helicopter, and . . . well . . . you get the idea.

Beloved author Tom Angleberger and illustrator John Hendrix have created a satisfying story of the simplicity of industriousness and the delights of being content.


"Hendrix's richly detailed, brightly colored spreads make the book visually engaging."
Kirkus Reviews

"Angleberger’s sly charmer is a gift to any reader besotted with engines, motors, and combustible fuel...It’s an unabashed celebration of the pleasure of using big machines to move things around—just because."
Publishers Weekly

“With large, zany illustrations and rapidly escalating hilarity, this lark of a book is sure to entertain big-machine-loving kids during storytime.”
