About the Book
On their way to the beach for a picnic, the Pig family encounters almost every kind of transportation vehicle imaginable--and imaginary.
From the Publisher
The station wagon, the tow truck, the garbage truck and the
bulldozer. Every manner of machinery that moves is riotously
depicted in this classic favorite. As the pig family head to the
beach for a picnic, they encounter every vehicle known, from the
forklift to the locomotive, and many vehicles that are not as
common, from the pumpkin car to the broom-o-cycle. Each detailed
spread provides tremendous opportunity to make up stories and
describe situations. Will Officer Flossy catch Dingo? Will
Rollo Rabbit catch his runaway steamroller? And with literally
hundreds of things to look at, youngsters will spend hours trying
to find Goldbug on every page.
From the Jacket
