Paperback -Old Truck backfires, graunches gears, won't start and often has to be towed. Retired and shut up in a shed, he feels alone and unwanted. Is this the end for Old Truck? Then brother John comes home... In this delightful story for 4-10 year olds, sisters Margery and Jennifer capture the New Zealand family farm in the 70s. For young and old there are themes of faithful friendship, of feeling valued and being loved. Today the real truck, a 1921 Model 10 Republic, is 'out and about' at vintage machinery rallies and has been featured in "Talking Trucks" on CueTV. Includes Glossary of truck terms
