Westley, the BIG Truck is a character building truck book about a big truck that has a big problem. You see, he gets stuck and can't go. He gets made fun of by the other trucks, cars, buses, and snooty foreign cars. Then he finds his way with the master mechanic of trucks. The lesson taught in the book of how words can injure and inflict hurt to another is good.
This is a book that also that teaches a moral lesson and also the creation in an allegorical way that a young boy can grasp. Mom and Dad, you will want to add this cute book to your library for that sweet boy of yours. It will become a favorite - just like he has his favorite "Varoom!" truck.
On another note, I love the way the author uses words to convey fun images of stores and shops: the Curl Up and dye beauty salon, the Eat Em & Weep Cafe, and the Tanks-a-Lot gas stations.
