Synopsis

Mark Weatherby's artwork explodes with excitement and adventure in this story about a little boy whose toy truck magically grows as big as a real one!

Early one morning, Wesley plays with his toy truck when something odd begins to happen. It gets bigger, and bigger - until it's the size of a huge, real truck! He packs it full with lumber, and he's off on an eventful road adventure to the lumberyard.
Mark Weatherby's lush, nostalgic paintings capture all of the wonder of a boy who actually dreams himself behind the wheel of his father's truck. And soon he awakens from his marvelous dream to the next best thing - spending a day with Dad in his semi for a truck stop breakfast and a day's work. What a treat!
