A charming picture book starring a hapless farmer who is struggling with what he thinks is a broken down tractor. But behind him, a resourceful princess is being pursued by a dragon who is being persued by a rather useless knight. In the end it's Arthur who winds up saving them all. Arthur's Tractor delivers a delightful twist on a classic rescue tale with its own unique fairy tale ending. The perfect book for any child who loves machines...and fairy tales!
