The Storm and the Monster-Trucks

Daniel Sjölin, illustrated by Simon Jannerland


Is there one child who hasn’t dreamed of driving a monster-truck? A small boy becomes the king of the road in this action-packed and humorous picture book. Inspiration comes from the sandbox with all its happy vehicle crashes. There is also a message: There are no impossible missions behind the wheel!


A small boy wakes up during a stormy night. Cars are sliding on the pavement and crash into each other, the roads are blocked and the rescue vehicles don’t get anywhere. This disastrous situation calls for an action hero! That’s when the little boy makes his entrance with his monster-truck!


This marks the start to a breathtaking journey through the city where the little boy is enlisted to transport medicine, balloons and chocolates to the hospital. He must make super-jumps over the overturned trucks and the large cracks in the street.

Help! How will this end?
