About The Book

From renowned illustrator Patrick Corrigan (Toe Truck Joe), the story of Big Rig, a tractor trailer who loves helping out . . . even when she’s not the best truck for the job!

"Here I am! Make way, make way!
Big Rig's here to save the day."

Children of all ages will love the story of Big Rig, a tractor trailer who thinks she can catch speeding cars, save boats stuck at sea, blow out fires, and more. When she’s not quite up to the task, leaving her out of breath, wet, and frustrated, Big Rig finally gets an opportunity to use her special talents to save the day!

The simple rhyming text tells a silly story, while gently introducing the concept of cooperation, as well as the message that the best way to show up in the world is as yourself!
