Product Details

Praise

Sutton’s muscular rhyming text turns the tractor into a folk hero, and Belton’s watercolor illustrations add a dreamy quality. Great for "rusty yet trusty" grandparents to read to adoring grandchildren.
—Kirkus Reviews

This gorgeously illustrated story will enthrall youngsters…The rhyming text flows nicely and is easy to read. The artwork tells the story beautifully and fills the pages with soft, delicate watercolor paintings with a hint of nostalgia. This picture book is terrific as a read-alone or read-aloud and will add a classy touch to any library collection.
—School Library Journal

The simple plot with its gentle drama, along with the flowing rhyme's italicized refrain and the pale, nostalgic watercolors, all make for an ideal read-aloud in the conceptual tradition of Loren Long's OTIS and Virginia Lee Burton's MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL.
