Want to Play Trucks?

by Ann Stott, illustrated by Bob Graham - £7.99  Walker Books Ltd (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781406378238 | ISBN 10: 1406378232

Jack likes trucks. Alex likes dolls. What will they play together? Their new favourite game, of course!
 
From Ann Stott and Bob Graham, the multi award-winning creator of Silver Buttons and A Bus Called Heaven, comes a story of friendship, perfect for any child who does not conform to traditional gender stereotypes.
 
Jack and Alex meet almost every morning in the sandbox at the playground. Jack likes trucks – big ones. Alex likes dolls – pink ones, with sparkles. And tutus. But Jack doesn’t want to play dolls, and Alex doesn’t want to play trucks. Luckily for Jack and Alex, the day is saved with a little bit of compromise and the easy acceptance that characterizes true friendship... What about dolls who drive trucks?
 
Recommended for readers aged: 3+
