What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Trucks! Counting! Tire-eating aliens! This wonderful, rhyming, super-silly book has it ALL…including Bob Staake’s awesome artwork. THE RUNAWAY NO-WHEELER is a clever spin on a counting book and the perennial favorite, a book starring trucks. Tony is a sturdy, long-hauling 18-wheeler with a delivery to make, but many obstacles are in the way – from potholes to slime to rescue missions to aliens’ space rockets. In the style of counting classics like Dr. Seuss’ Ten Apples Up on Top – though in this case, subtractive counting – Tony finds himself losing wheel after wheel with each hurdle he encounters. Will he be able to make his delivery?
