Synopsis

Minerva Louise is back--and this time she's taking her show on the road. The intrepid but airhead hen is off on a joyride in the back of the farm's red truck. And what a lot there is to see! In her usual fashion, she mistakes golfers for farmers digging and a construction site for a playground for trucks. Goofy and lovable as ever, the endearing Minerva Louise--called by Publishers Weekly "unquestionably a star"--leads the way in her newest adventure--on wheels.
