A simple story about complex imaginations, now in board book!

All Lucy wants to do is play with her brand-new, bright red wagon. But her mother has other plans for her-and the wagon. Lucy must go to the market and buy vegetables for dinner. Lucy doesn't want to do chores! But she sets off for the market nonetheless, hauling her red wagon with her. Before long, her ordinary trip becomes a high-seas adventure, a ride through outer space, and a day at the circus. As long as she has her red wagon, not even chores can get in the way of Lucy's fun.

Renata Liwska's vibrant art takes center stage in this imaginative book for the youngest of readers, just the way it  did in her award-winning, New York Times bestselling titles The Quiet Book and The Loud Book!, both written by Deborah Underwood.

Shelf Awareness

When Lucy asks her mother if she can play with her “brand-new little red wagon,” her mother answers, “Sure, you can use your wagon to go to the market.” That may not be the freewheeling kind of “play” Lucy had in mind, but she quickly turns a prospective chore into a wild ride.
