A title from the "Matthew and the Midnight" series by Allen Morgan. Matthew has lost a favourite toy truck. After falling asleep with much worry, Matthew wakes during the night, where meets and assists the Midnight Tow Truck Driver to collect and shrink cars--"I trade with the other guys". After a night of hooking and shrinking cars, eating red licorice, and meeting colourful tow truck drivers, Matthew wakes to find his truck in his coat pocket.
