Trucker and Train Board Book (Abridged / Board book)
Trucker, the big rig, loves to rule the road with his size, strength, and mighty horn. The other vehicles swerve and shake as Trucker blasts past, expecting them to follow along in awe. Then Trucker meets the louder, stronger, and kinder Train. He sees how the other vehicles gleam and swoon when Train is around. And he wonders, Why don’t they ever gleam at me?
Trucker just wants Train to go away . . . until a broken railroad crossing signal changes everything. Can Trucker use his size and strength for the good of his fellow vehicles before it’s too late?
This gently abridged board book is perfect for fans of Little Blue Truck and Loren Long’s Otis stories, Trucker and Train is a classic in the making.

"Grab your CB radios and hold onto your whistle. In this battle of truck vs. train, the true winners are the readers."—Kirkus "With frequent onomatopoeia, debut author Stark handles Trucker’s complex emotions with gentle sympathy....You don’t have to rule the road to be a hero, Stark and Kolar suggest, and that’s probably for the best."—Publishers Weekly "The relationship between the trucker and other vehicles illustrates the complex dynamic of jealousy, admiration, and friendship among peers. A wonderful and fun addition to any library collection."—School Library Journal —
