KIRKUS REVIEW

Instead of a wagon wheel, Willy, whose sole characteristic is that he loves wheels, builds a wheel wagon to house his collection. But then when ail his friends ride up and request that he fix their broken trike, train, roller skate or go-cart wheels or give them new ones, Willy cracks. He jumps into his wagon to hide, it rolls downhill, and he is only rescued from who-knows-what danger by the intervention of his friends on their assorted wheels. Gibbons has evidently decided near the end to make this a lesson in the value of friendship, but the three items which are enclosed in hearts on the last squiggly-lined page -- wheels, wheel wagon and friends -- never do mesh, let alone go anywhere.
