Adorable barnyard animals go for a joyride in this hilarious tale, perfect for very young readers and fans of Little Blue Truck.

A llama has no wheels.

A turtle has no wheels.

A cat has no wheels.

Not to worry! A skateboard has wheels, a tractor has wheels and a bike has wheels.

Some wily farm animals decide to go for a ride, leaving the farmer without her wheels. After the animals go and go and go and go, chaos ensues . . . but luckily there are some truck driving chicks to save the day.
