Come along for the ride as Frankie the big rig truck takes us on the job, driving past kiddie cars (school buses) and land yachts (RVs). Hear the horn blow and the wipers schwat the windshield clean. But, BANG! SHHUUU! Uh-oh: a blow-out! Don't worry, a service truck saves the day so we can get the job done and make a very special delivery.

My Thoughts
The story is short, but the illustrations sure interested my nephew, who loves big trucks.  There are several trucks featured in the book, all which have a particular job to do each day.  Makes a good addition to the truck lovers library.  I Rated This Book:  3/5 Stars ***
