Tractors, diggers, mixers, bulldozers, and more star in this colorful salute to vehicles that roll, lift, climb, squash, and keep going when the going gets tough.
Red truck, yellow truck and their dog drivers are on their way to the construction site. But as they drive through the busy city, a snowy forest, and a cow-filled farm, they get sidetracked by a slow garbage truck, a snowdrift, and a speeding tractor. Will they get their jobs done before they have to turn in for the night?
Author Michelle Robinson's rhythmic, action-packed text builds excitement with every page turn, while Jez Tuya's colorful trucks, townscapes, and adorable dogs on-the-go beg for an attentive pause. Endpapers bursting with different kinds of vehicles will delight readers looking for even more truck fun. Ideal for story times and fans of Richard Scarry's Busytown.
