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 whatever it takes to get their pal back on the road.Filled with truck sounds and animals noises, here is a rollicking homage to the power of friendship and the rewards of helping others.

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)"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.
