"The New Old Truck is a magnificent children's book...this award winning collaboration combines family history with international travels and times." -Midwest Book Review
Old Truck backfires, graunches gears, won't start and often has to be towed. Retired, rejected and shut up in a shed, Old Truck feels old and useless. But to the children he is a much loved family member. Is this the end for their beloved Old Truck?
This award winning book includes material about the American origin of the real Old Truck, a 1921 Model 10 Republic which journeyed to New Zealand in 1923. Educational graphics and old photos show his heritage in a great line of Republics made in Alma, Michigan, and his remarkable rescue and restoration on Silodale farm.
