Beep! Beep! Beep! Meet Blue. A muddy country road is no match for this little pick up - that is, until he gets stuck while pushing a dump truck out of the muck. Luckily, Blue has made a pack of farm animal friends along his route. And they're willing to do whatever it takes to get their pal back on the road.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a horrible lesson for your child “No one heard or no one cared”. I hate this book with a passion. What a terrible lesson to teach. If someone is mean to you, ignore them when they need help, just help your friends. Just a horrible book.

Editorial Reviews

Schertle's ( All You Need for a Beach ) rhyming stanzas are succinct, and she gives readers plenty of opportunities to chime in with animal and vehicle noises; colored, standout fonts highlight these sounds for extra effect. McElmurry's ( Mad About Plaid ) gouaches recall the heyday of Golden Books in their combination of vividness, naivete and sweetness, and her rich palette achieves verisimilitude that is no less satisfying for being nostalgic." - Publishers Weekly, starred review (4/28/08)"
