Allen Morgan; Michael Martchenko. Matthew has lost a favourite toy truck. After falling asleep with much worry, Matthew wakes during the night, where meets and assists the Midnight Tow Truck Driver to collect and shrink cars-"I trade with the other guys".

Allen Morgan; Michael Martchenko. This button opens a dialog that displays additional images for this product with the option to zoom in or out. Tell us if something is incorrect. After a night of hooking and shrinking cars, eating red licorice, and meeting colourful tow truck drivers, Matthew wakes to find his truck in his coat pocket. Martchenko's well-known illustrative style and technique greatly enhances Morgan's imaginative storyline.

The midnight tow truck driver who appears outside his house takes Matthew on as his assistant. This story is the first of three Matthew's Midnight Adventure books with illustrations by Michael Martchenko (of Robert Munsch fame)

The midnight tow truck driver who appears outside his house takes Matthew on as his assistant. They rove through the streets collecting vehicles for the driver's collection. Lunch consists of strand after stand of red licorice. This story is the first of three Matthew's Midnight Adventure books with illustrations by Michael Martchenko (of Robert Munsch fame). While neither the plot nor the dialogue have quite the imaginative flair of the Munsch books, Matthew's adventure makes for lively reading, and the illustrations play a key role in building appeal. Recommended to those librarians and parents who see no harm in a little red licorice. Diane Harke, Edmonton, AB.

I bought this book based on the title for my son whose name is Matthew. I was disappointed that in nearly all of the illustrations, the tow truck driver has a cigarette hanging out of his mouth. I don't understand why the illustrator had to include that, especially one who is known for his work in Robert Munsch books. I could see that if it was a book written in the 60's or something, when smoking was widely accepted and people were naive about it, but in this day in age, people know the dangers of smoking and our kids are being told that it's bad for you. I don't see why a children's book needs to have a truck driver with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth in nearly every page. I'm getting rid of the book because I am tired of my kids asking me about it when we read it. Lesson to me: don't judge a book by its cover - read it first and look at the illustrations!

(On another note, what's up with a truck driver who comes around and takes kids for rides in the middle of the night? Kind of creepy, really...)

Nowhee did it say that it was a miniature book. Was very diappointed.

I am 26 now and recall having this book read to me/reading this book as a child. I actually went to look it up here today because I was reminded of it by a movie and remembered it being my favorite book. As for the 'creepy' tow truck driver or the not-so-child-friendly things such as him having a cigarette in his mouth; stop trying to shield your kids from the world! I loved this book as a kid and I have never so much as tried a cigarette and never once have I gotten into a strangers vehicle lol. If you teach your children to have good judgement in thinking for themselves you'll never have to worry about them being influences so heavily by such minute, semantic details in a book. Teach them what is right and wrong, dangerous and safe and more importantly WHY those things are what they are and you wont have to shield them from everything bad all the time.
I remember parts of the plot being a little freaky to me as a kid but it sort of fit well with that mystery of what is out there in the night. As a kid, it is a little frightening/overwhelming to think of the whole world that is out there while you sleep that you wont get to experience till you are much older. I think I liked this book so much because it gave you a little taste of that world which made it less intimidating in a way. It was comforting. I almost want to buy the book to read it again as an adult!

My 4 year old son adores the 'Matthew' series. These books are an absolute must for any kid, especially young boys.
All of these books feature a boy who goes to sleep only to be 'awakened' by a midnight visitor of whatever kind the book is about. They go off and have great adventures together, then every morning at about six he goes into his mother's room and wakes her up to tell her about it.
Great sense of humour, and beautifully illustrated. Anyone who likes Munsch will love these books too.

The first time I read this to my son, I didn't think too much about it - he loves trucks and it's about a truck. Later, my husband tried reading it and refused to finish it, alarmed by the plot. Once pointed out to me, I couldn't read it again either.

Here it is: The boy sneaks out of the house in the middle of the night to get into the truck of a stranger where they proceed to steal cars and the man feeds him candy.

I guess it's up to the parent if they are comfortable with that but thought I'd give a head's up.

A big man calling for a young boy to come take a ride with him in the middle of the night, and the kids goes?

Sorry folks ... I found this book very creepy and not something I would read to my child.

Creepy book. The illustrations are dated and strange...the truck driver smokes a cigarette, has a beer gut, and wears a studded-leather vest. I won't even go into detail about when he offers the boy candy once he lures him in his tow truck at midnight. This book shouldn't be on kid bookshelves anymore.
I agree. This book has no place in my home in the year 2014. U don't encourage my children to go out with strangers in the middle of the night, no matter how "magical" the story could be. I tossed this in the trash and was going to email the author but be died in 1990.
