About this item

There are so many great floats at the town parade: the Young Farmers' Club, the Sports Team, the Outdoor Club. Tractor Mac can't wait to see which one he gets to pull. Then he finds out that his friends have been asked to pull all of the floats he wanted, and all that is left is the Mrs. J.'s Petals and Posies, Ribbons and Roses float. Tractor Mac's friends laugh and say that he will be the cutest float in the parade. But when Tractor Mac sees a picture of Mrs. J. as a little girl on a red tractor that looks just like him, he realizes that together, they really will be the parade's best float.

About the Author

Billy Steers

In April 1999, I introduced the first children's book that I wrote and illustrated, Tractor Mac Arrives at the Farm. Originally published by Golden Books, Tractor Mac Arrives at the Farm tells the story of Sibley the work horse who feels slighted when a "shiny new tractor comes and takes over his chores. " Sibley and Mac overcome their differences and become "the best of friends. " Publisher's Weekly called it a "bright, spirited read aloud" and after only five months the book was in its second printing. I have continued on with several more enthralling and likeable Tractor Mac children's books for boys and girls in the series. Children love the bright, detailed illustrations and absorbing stories, which have become "bedtime favorites. " Subsequent stories include Tractor Mac Learns to Fly followed by Tractor Mac You're a Winner, Tractor Mac Builds a Barn, Tractor Mac Harvest Time, Tractor Mac Saves Christmas, Tractor Mac Parade's Best, Tractor Mac Farmer's Market and Tractor Mac Tune Up. The 10th title in the series, Tractor Mac Farm Days, is a board book developed for the littlest tractor fans and was released in the spring of 2012.
