As hard as she tries, the ugly truckling cannot keep up with her brothers and sisters. She can't pull logs, she can't carry hay, and her three small wheels are no match for their four big, strong ones. She'll never be a good truck. So the ugly truckling runs away from home in search of her own identity -- and finds out that she may not be such an ugly truckling after all.

David Gordon's fresh twist on a familiar tale is as endearing as it is poignant.
