The Trucker

Barbara Samuels

Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)

What Leo wants is a fire truck; what Mama gives him is a kitten: Lola. To make matters worse, mischievous and high-spirited Lola just about takes over all of Leo’s favorite things. Just when Leo’s had enough, Lola surprises him and saves the day. Colorful, bold illustrations filled with trucks, trucks, and more trucks enliven this satisfying story of friendship.
