A young girl turns her imagination into action in this beautifully crafted and intricately designed debut picture book.

When is an old truck something more? On a small, bustling farm, a resilient and steadfast pickup works tirelessly alongside the family that lives there, and becomes a part of the dreams and ambitions of the family’s young daughter.

After long days and years of hard work leave the old truck rusting in the weeds, it’s time for the girl to roll up her sleeves. Soon she is running her own busy farm, and in the midst of all the repairing and restoring, it may be time to bring her faithful childhood companion back to life.

With an eye-catching retro design and cleverly nuanced illustrations, The Old Truck celebrates the rewards of determination and the value of imagination.


“charming debut... It’s a simple, beautifully constructed story about continuity and ingenuity... The Pumphreys have created a book that’s both timeless and au courant.” — The New York Times

The Old Truck gives the reader a warm feeling strongly reminiscent of and reflecting family relationships and bonds, at the same time it considers, on behalf of the reader, how perseverance can prove invaluable to reaching desired goals. The brothers who created this book have successfully drawn younger audiences in with their traditional and simplistic style illustrations and a text that is relatable and feels real.” — Armadillo
