From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 Fifty is a talking red tractor. His rat friend, Norris, is being terrorized by the barnyard cat, so Fifty comes up with a plan; the next time the cat slinks into the dark barn, she's greeted by a huge black rat. The giant is actually Norris' shadow, cast as he stands in front of Fifty's glaring headlamps; tractor and rat can finally settle down for a quiet night. Only 24 pages long, Fifty's story gets right down to business; the action of the cat and rat chase and subsequent ruse take up most of the tale. The ink and colored-pencil drawings are large and colorful, lending personality and excitement to the characters and story. There's something of the old Disney cartoon in the slapstick humor and in Fifty's cheerfully bulging headlight "eyes" and fenders; he becomes a "human" machine much as Bill Peet's vehicles take on animated qualities. The text is lively, if brief; its language is relatively and refreshingly rich for a beginning-to-read, yet its British origin is never a problem.
