Written by a grandmother and teacher, the beautifully-illustrated Grandpa and the Truck stories teach children, ages 4-8, important life lessons through a vehicle kids love--the big rigs and their drivers. Kids will follow Grandpa and the truck on a journey across America, seeing regional differences, meeting wildly-entertaining characters, and learning about truckers' unique lifestyle and language, as they enter a world few really know. Book 1 focuses on what happens when a chain of cars follow a 'smokie' on a fog-bound highway in mountainous northern California, and "Ralph and the Bloodhounds" demonstrates why one should never walk into unfamiliar territory, alone, at night.
