Tundra Books
JUVENILE FICTION / Animals / Farm Animals
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.

LIMITED TEXT: A very easy, bouncy and fun read.

FUNNY AND GORGEOUS ILLUSTRATIONS: A beautiful palette and funny expressive characters from an accomplished illustrator.

SUBTLE HUMOR: These sly and clever animals taking off on their wheels is a joy to behold.

UP-AND-COMING ILLUSTRATOR: Shannon McNeill is a very talented but as yet under-the-radar illustrator, and this is her first author-illustrated book.

MORE TO COME: This is the first book in a two-book contract so expect to see more from Shannon on the Tundra list.

Canadian-born and Southern California–raised author and illustrator SHANNON McNEILL is a passionate advocate for children’s art education and volunteers in her community as an art teacher. She enjoys taco shops, reading aloud, weird plants, drawing in her car and spending time with her family in Southern California.
