Young Pablo plays with a wooden truck that had belonged to his grandfather, and he wants to know the story behind it. The grandfather tells how his family was forced to flee to the border and harassed by planes—then tells of the saved sack of toys that Pablo now plays with. Beautifully illustrated, this heartfelt tale about the relationship between a boy and his grandfather gently reflects on the effects of war.
Pablo juega con el camión de madera que fue del abuelo, al tiempo que le pide que le cuente el cuento del camión. Y el abuelo cuenta que huían hacia la frontera, acosados por los aviones, y cómo se salvó el saco de los juguetes con los que él juega ahora, y que ojalá este cuento hubiese sido sólo un cuento.
