One summer, a large truck is tugged to a small island. While driving on a curved narrow road, the rear tires veer off the path and the truck is stuck in mud. The vehicle blocks the passage of other vehicles going in either direction. Two families needing to go in one direction and two families needing to go in the other direction to important appointments devise a clever plan that gets the four families to their destinations. The truck is eventually aided. Later that evening, all including the truck end up in the same place. This is a rhyming picture book that has a satisfying ending. Illustrations have a retro look to them and show an assortment of characters.
