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 and humor-filled illustrations, this exuberant story—now in a sturdy board book format—is certain to become a read-aloud favorite that you'll return to again and again.
