From the Publisher
Annotation Friendly sheepdog Farmer Dale picks up a succession of hitchhikers in his red pickup truck, including an accordion-playing goat, a singing sheep in a straw hat, and a roller-skating pig (they're on their way to the local talent competition, and dislike each other on sight). The bouncily rhythmic text depicts the trip: "The pickup bounced and shimmied./ It groaned and squeaked and wheezed./ It spit a thankful cloud of smoke/ and started with a wheeze." Eventually the truck, overloaded by all the passengers, grinds to a halt. Farmer Dale gets out and pushes, but to no avail; he needs the assistance of those haughty hitchhikers. Full-color crayon-and-watercolor illustrations accompany the text.
Editors Note Farmer Dale, on his way to town with a load of hay, gives a lift to a series of bossy barnyard animals, but when the truck breaks down all of the passengers have to set aside their differences and work together to get the truck back on the road.
