The Kind Little Truck
(Written and Illustrated by Brady)
There once was a little truck named Mr. Truck, a/k/a Truckilious Exhaustpipe Truck. His name was almost bigger than he was.
He saw the garbage truck with a flat tire, so he stopped to help. He pulled out a little needle from the tire and started blowing air into the little hole.
Then, after the tire was blown back up, he saw that “Little Dipper”, the flying car, had a big bite out of his wing. The little Truck went to the metal store and bought some metal the same color to fix the wing. The flying car said, “Thank you.” And Mr. Truck said, “You are welcome.” And then he set off down the road to do some more kind things.
The little truck then saw his friend, a car named “Bolt” who had a flat head. He was getting laughed at by the other cars because he had a flat head. Mr. Truck stood up for the little car with the flat head and said, “You have a nice head and you shouldn’t be laughed at all of the time. I like your head. It is unique.” And the little car felt really good.
The vehicles that the little truck helped, the garbage truck, the flying car, and the flat head car, were together. The garbage truck had an idea. “Let’s say a really big thank you to the little truck. We can have a gigantic party for Mr. Truck. I know what we all can do to throw the party.”
“Little Dipper, Mr. Truck’s favorite cake is Moon Cheese; can you fly to the moon and get some? “Yes, Sir,” said Little Dipper.
“I’ll work on the entrance,” said the garbage truck.
The flat head truck had a job, too; he was to make the decorations.
It will be a great party.
The garbage truck was clever and made a boat that looked like it’s anchor was stuck. The little truck could never pass someone in trouble, so he stopped to help the little boat. Something started coming up out of the water, and it was a big tent! And the little truck saw the “Thank You” sign, and he went inside the tent and he saw nothing because it was dark inside the tent. There was a tiny bit of light and then his friends came out and said, “SURPRISE!” And the little truck had a blast. It was a fun day for Mr. truck, a/k/a Truckilious Exhaustpipe Truck. And he needed car insurance.
