Making a fifth picture-book appearance, the goofy hen/heroine is off on a new adventure: riding in the farmer's red truck. Minerva Louise's cock-eyed identification of the various sights she passes (she calls a backyard swimming pool "a beautiful lake"; golfers on a green she identifies as "farmers hard at work"; a steepled church she sees as "a silly barn wearing a hat") are guaranteed to delight toddlers. Inspired foolishness.
