Clever picture book with rhyming words and repetitive phrases. Farmer John's Tractor saves the day!

ksoles Jan 02, 2014

From the author of "Roadwork" and "Demolition" comes the charming story of a family and its car that get stuck in rising flood waters. Everyone who attempts to rescue the car fails: a jeep and a tow truck also become mired in the mud and a firetruck can't pass over a rock slide that blocks its path.

Albeit old and unobtrusive, Farmer John's "rusty yet trusty and orangey red" tractor proves reliable enough to save the stranded folks. The story thus emphasizes the virtues of modesty and dependability through fun, rhyming text. The watercolour illustrations, though muted and subtle, enhance the book's theme and accentuate the scene of steadily pouring rain.
