The Lovereading4Kids comment

This enchanting story set in the second world war will charm readers of all ages. Illustrated in colour, with a heartwarming text, Jenny the Jeep follows the release of A Story about Ducks, A Railway ABC and Ben. Jenny is different from all the other jeeps but now she is the only one who can save the day, but does she?Each of these titles feature incredibly touching stories by the inimitable author and artist Jack Townend, titles which V&A Publishing has recently rediscovered and they have now been lovingly restored for their first printing since the Second World War.

Synopsis

Jenny the Jeep by Jack Townend

Jenny is a very pretty Jeep indeed - instead of being green like all the others, she is pink! Jenny is proud to be pink but her peers grow increasingly jealous and mercilessly tease and exclude her. When the troops head to Italy, disaster strikes and, when the soldiers ask for help, only brave Jenny can save the day.
