This is a brilliant collection of 3 short linked stories that every boy who is mad about dumper trucks and diggers will devour on their own or with their parents. Green Bananas make reading fun.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
