書籍內容簡介:
這本書是在描寫一個小男孩抱著最喜歡的卡車玩具睡著了,睡夢中他成了一位卡車司機,在暴風雨中車子卻爆胎了,醒來才發現是一場夢。不過當坐在卡車裏頭的他醒來時,爸爸告訴他剛才一路上發生的事卻又跟夢中一樣,很有趣的故事。適合5歲以上兒童閱讀。

Wesley begins his day in his room playing with his red semi-flatbed rig. Suddenly, the toy becomes a full-sized semi that the boy drives on an all-day adventure, through sun, rain, and "bubble trouble" (a flat tire). As he nears his destination, he awakens to find himself in his father's real truck, and Daddy describes the same ride that Wesley dreamed. While most of the story flows smoothly, the transition from dream to reality is a bit bumpy. The text is sprinkled with trucker jargon, which adds a touch of authenticity but the language sometimes seems forced. The phrases are translated at the story's end. The artwork was created with an unusual combination of acrylic, sand, and road dirt. Loose, textured brush strokes and the gritty materials give a dreamy quality to some paintings. In others, the technique captures the glare of the bright sun, dusty haze, or a sudden downpour. These images contrast neatly with the smooth photographic realism of Wesley's face, uniting to create pleasing spreads that capture the child's enthusiasm. Truck lovers will enjoy the ride.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright c Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
