About The Book

Three of the best-selling Ready to Rolls are bunched together for the latest Trucktown hardcover.

In PETE'S PARTY, Jack and Gabby navigate, swerve, curve and bounce around the roads of Trucktown until they arrive at Pete's place for a party.

Max is having so much fun that he keeps getting stuck. It takes all of Trucktown to get him out in UH-OH, MAX!

Everyone's favorite ice cream truck is doing everything he can think of to make himself dizzy. Nothing seems to be working as well as he'd like. Izzy goes through the car wash, gets covered in suds, and spins himself in circles. He gets in a tizzy, feels whizzy and fizzy, but is he ever DIZZY IZZY?
