phylys the farm truckPhylys is the flash new farm truck at the Castle Hill high country farm.  The occupants there weren’t that impressed and doubted she could do the job.  Phylys gives everything a go though, and isn’t put off by sheep poo or is afraid to get muddy.  And then Phylys saves the day and proves her true value, winning over all the doubters!

This is a fun book that is easy to read with cute little stanzas telling the tale.  The illustrations are beautiful, quirky and detailing farm life.  This book will engage farm kids, who will view parts of their daily lives, and city kids, who will get a glimpse of a different New Zealand lifestyle.  It gives the messages of always trying your best in whatever you do and prejudging others is not good.  Quintessentially kiwi, this book delights every child who reads it.
