Description

Farmer Dale is hauling a load of hay into town when, one by one, he meets some bossy barnyard animals looking for a lift. The kindly farmer lets them all squeeze in, but then his trusty truck breaks down and everyone is stranded. That is, until they get over their differences and pull together to get that old red rig moooooving again.

Full of raucous, rhythmic language, this exuberant story is certain to become a read-aloud favorite with families and children everywhere.
