EXCERPT: ‘Every single morning before the birds wake up,
Mr Mills of Venice Street starts up his old white truck. ..’
THE BLURB: The Old White Truck is a quirky and amusingly illustrated snapshot of what makes small-town New Zealand tick. The Old White Truck is based on the real comings and goings of Mr Mills and is a tribute to Mrs Mills’ legendary home made scones!

Making early morning bread deliveries around the town of Martinborough in his old white truck, Mr Mills discovers a most delicious aroma. After delivering the final loaf of bread to the final door, and with growing excitement, he traces the smell back to his own front door.


MY VIEWS: Another wonderful tale from the author of Mr Phelps’ Fish Truck, Phillip Percy and illustrated by his father Dale.

This book follows the old white truck and it’s driver, Mr Mills, as he delivers bread around the NZ town of Martinborough.

This is a lovely toddlers/new readers tale that rhymes, accompanied by delightfully detailed illustrations.

The author and his family live in Martinborough, and Phillip wrote this book after Mrs Mills arrived on their doorstep with a batch of freshly baked scones to welcome them to the neighborhood when they were moving in. Phillip said he ‘wrote this little story to recognize her generosity and to capture a slice of life that typifies living in small town New Zealand.
