About The Book

Trucks of different shapes and sizes share one important purpose in this classic picture book from the bestselling creator of Moonshot and Locomotive.

You have hurried
to be on time.

You look now
through a window
and see five trucks.

They are hurrying, too.

Where are they going?

Five drivers
for five trucks—
each has a job to do.

They hurry to be on time.

And then
they see you!

Originally published in 1999 by DK, Five Trucks features a new cover and plenty of exciting machines!
