This was such a funny story about a farmer with a very dirty truck, and lots of animals and produce on board, who breaks down, and has to stop other motorists to help him, with disastrous effects!

"Farmer Fisher pulled the choke
And off they drove in a cloud of smoke.
Rattle went the tappets and the crank-shaft broke
On the way to market."


This was a really lovely children’s book, my 4-year-old loved the pictures of the animals and cars, and he also liked the rhyming and repetition. He liked counting how many cars had broken down as the story went along, and looking for the frog that kept appearing in the pictures.



"And with it went the oil,
the coil,
the piston rings,
The steering,
gearing,
the valves and springs,
And the doors
and the floors
and a lot more things
On the way to market."


I thought that the music available online for this book was a lovely touch too as it basically meant that you got a free cd with your book!
9 out of 10
