Drive By Nathan Clement Cover Image
Not Available


A little boy reveres his truck-driving dad. A little boy tells the story of what his dad does in his long day of driving a truck. Startlingly vivid graphic images of a big rig rendered in vibrant colors and compelling compositions make life on the road seem exotic and beautiful even as they bring the father and son together at the end of the day.

Praise For…

* "Striking graphics. . . . In its strong, steady lines and depiction of a deeply pastoral Midwest, this offering could well be seen as the Great American Truck Book." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "A noteworthy picture book debut. . . . Unusual and often cinematic perspectives - a thigh-high view of Daddy gripping the gear shift, a bumper's-eye view of a traffic jam plunge readers into the action and give the compositions a red-blooded energy." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Graphically more sophisticated than most books on trucks." --Booklist
