PRE PURCHASE PREVIEW:
first part of the first story.
There is a family of little cars
that live at the end of a gravel road deep in the forest and high in the
hills above Rainbow Town and this is one of their stories.
There was a red one named little
There was a blue one named little
There was a green one named little
There was a pink one named little
and the little orange one?
his name was pobb
That's Pea Oh with a Double Bee.
Everyone called him pobb because that was the sound he made when he
zoomed along the road.
anyway, one day all the little
cars was driving down the gravel road together and they came to a fork
in the road.
Yes, an actual fork, stuck in the
and there was a horse standing in
the field near the fork in the road and all the little cars pulled up in
a neat little line, next to the horse, that was near the fork, that was
in the road.
little blue asked the horse which
was the way to the ice cream shop.
little green asked the horse which
was the way to the library.
little red wanted to know who left
their fork stuck in the road.
little yellow, who I hadn't
mentioned till now because he's been hiding behind little purple, wanted
to know the way to the flower shop.
little purple didn't ask the horse
anything because her horn wasn't working properly.
little pink blinked his blinkers.
blink, blink, blink.
The horse listened to all of the
questions from all of the little cars.
But, because he was a horse, he
didn't answer them. Horses can only talk to each other, not to cars or
So all the little cars drove past
the fork that was in the road.
Except for pobb that
pobb stayed behind and tried to
talk to the horse.
pobb kept trying to talk to the
horse, but after a very short while, the horse walked away because when
a car talks to a horse, all the horse hears is beep beep
This story goes on for a very long
time and we haven't even got to the part with the helicopter yet and
before I can even begin to talk about the helicopter, I have to ask you
my child, what is the name of the little orange car.....
If you donít say pobb.
