Description
Essentially a destruction worker, Jackhammer Sam is the sidewalk-blasting man, stopping traffic and digging right down to the subway, all the while singing his song, "Atta-RATTA-binga-bong. Atta-RATTA-pinga-pong." In his rhyming and very rhythmic text, the author of Bun, Onion, Burger follows Sam as he choppa-chops his way through the city streets and even into outer space, in this wry tribute to road workers of all kinds, for readers and listeners up to 7. David Catrow's appropriately frenetic illustrations portray larger-than-life Sam and the legions of urban bystanders brought to a standstill by his all-encompassing task in hilarious detail.

"Like New York itself, Sam is wonderful and overwhelming, rattling and mesmerizing."—Publishers Weekly

"Bouncy rhyming text, kinetic and colorful art, and a lively construction worker make for a peppy read with a tall-tale flair."—Booklist
