About this product
- DescriptionRhyming read-aloud text and atmospheric illustrations tell a satisfying tale of a family stranded in a flood -- and a reliable old tractor to the rescue. Farmer John's tractor lies locked in the shed, rusty yet trusty and orangey red. When the rain comes that season, it doesn't let up, filling the river until it overflows, swirling and rushing and gushing. Down by the river, a car gets stuck, and the family inside shouts for help. As they climb to the roof, a series of vehicles -- a speedy jeep, a strong tow truck, even a isy fire engine -- rush one by one to the scene. But each gets more stuck than the last. Is it possible that Farmer John's ancient tractor, rusty as it is, could still be up for the job?
