About This Book

A bright red, big-rig truck has a job to do. From a loading dock, its cargo doors close on a shipment of bicycles stacked in boxes over a half dozen high. The truck pulls up to a stop sign at the first intersection, waits for the traffic to clear, and then with a rev of the engine, the truck pulls forward. Diesel smoke belches from its exhaust pipes. The traffic is bumper to bumper when the truck passes through a tunnel, just barely fitting under the 12 and a half feet maximum height.

Another blast of diesel and the truck is out of the tunnel and on the open road, where it passes other trucks, stops at an all-night diner, pushes on through rain and meandering highways until finally reaching its destination. The bikes are loaded off on pallets at a depot and the truck is ready for its next orders.

Donald Crews was awarded a Caldecott Honor for this simple, straightforward story of a truck that is forever moving, well, "straight forward." Beginning readers are sure to pick up words and letters along the truck's journey, such as the trucking sign on the truck itself, the road signs and landmarks. In bold illustrations Crews offers an introduction to both modes of transportation and how goods get from one place to another.
