Tad the Trucker
by Kelly Paulgaard

Tad the Trucker has an important job hauling equipment. On this journey he is travelling from Grenfell, Saskatchewan to Edmonton, Alberta. He packs a lunch for his long drive and gets in the driver's seat to start the engine. Along the way he sees birds, cows, and lots of cars and trucks. The sky is beautiful and changes from blue with fluffy clouds to a bright pink sunset. After he unloads the wheel loader, he goes to the truckstop for supper. Tad sees his trucker friend Tianna and her dog Banjo. Then it is time to go to bed inside his truck parked beside all the other truckers. Tomorrow will be another big day with a new destination.

Kelly Paulgaard is the mother of a trucker and grandmother of a boy who loves trucks and books. It occurred to her that there were many books for children about trucks but few about the truckers. She was inspired by her son's travels across Canada and the United States as a long-haul trucker and the many truckers she saw going by her home near to the trans Canada highway. Kelly lives with her husband Neil and their dog Simon on a farm near to Wolseley, Saskatchewan. She is an avid reader, sewer of bags and quilts, and volunteer team leader for the international charity Days for Girls. This is her first book.
