Do you have a young child who hates following rules? Or does their sense of adventure overrule their need for safety? This exciting tale will have young readers holding their breath, and learning a valuable lesson about rules and safety along the way.
Oliver loves the new blue billy cart his grandfather has just given him, and he can't wait to see how fast it can go. But Oliver's grandfather and mother just keep giving him rules, rules, rules! Oliver is a big boy with a brand new billy cart and he doesn't need rules! Or does he? Find out just how much fun ... or trouble Oliver gets into!

We received this book to give an honest review.

I really liked this book for a good lesson for kids to learn. 
In this story Billy gets to build his own billy cart with his grandfather which K and I both thought was neat. Though of course he has rules to follow it seems that at first he is okay with that until he decides not to. Billy's decision is a scary one because my heart stopped for a moment in the book. It just goes to show that listening and following rules are very important. 
I plan on reading this to A but I wanted to read it to K first to see if he would truly understand why following rules are important. I just hope that he took something away from this story.
