Wonderful simple text interspersed with some bright bold illustrations as well as some useful fact wheels will provide hours of entertainment at any time of the day or night. When snow seems to get the better of a coal delivery, yes you’ve guessed it; felix is on hand to save the day.
Every once in a while a children’s book character comes along that really captures the imagination of its audience, garnering a legion of loyal fans eager for the next instalment of their particular hero’s adventure. We all know, by first name, a postman and his black and white cat (Pat, oh and Jess, of course), an explorer and her best friend Boots the monkey (Dora, who else?), a builder and his team of mechanical chums (Bob, how could you forget?) and the fireman from the Welsh Valleys with the bright, clean engine (could only be, Sam). But how familiar are you with a kind, friendly, super clever, shiny blue tractor from Ambers Farm? His name is Felix, Felix the Fast Tractor.

Other Felix titles include Felix the Fast Tractor and the New Building and Felix the Fast Tractor helps to find Ben.

Synopsis

Felix The Fast Tractor And The Coal Delivery by Catherine Cannon

Felix the fast tractor lives on a farm with the Story family and Ben the dog in the village of Glempsea. He is a caring and kind tractor, who is not only fast in the 'speed' sense, but he thinks fast too. Follow Felix as he helps with a delivery of coal in snowy weather - but will it get there in time?

More factually accurate than other titles of this genre, helpful ‘want to know more?’ sections appear every couple of pages, while featuring colourful characters, appealing storylines and delightful illustrations, perfect for this age group.

About the Author

Catherine Cannon
These delightful tales of rural life are the work of mum-of-two, Catherine Cannon. Having written and self published the first three Felix the Fast Tractor titles to satisfy her son’s farming curiosity and particularly his interest in tractors Catherine explains the need for characters such as Felix, “As with most four-year-olds my son was incredibly inquisitive, barraging me with ‘whys? wheres? and what fors?’ each time we’d sit down to read together. I found the books aimed at his age group were very much plot-based and there was no offering when it came to the finer details, such as ‘how does a tractor work, mummy?’ or ‘where does the rain come from?’ he still wanted the fun aspect of reading a book but more often than not he wanted more from story time and so Felix was born.”

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

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
