Every little boy and some little girls are mad about machines and particularly farm machinery. So here at last is the most wonderful character that will have your child spellbound. Felix the Fast Tractor and the New Building is the first Felix title. We are introduced to our hard-working hero and see him surprised with a new home as his friends on the farm build him a new barn. Readers find out about low-loaders, diggers, preparing a site for a new building, the laying of foundations and, of course, the workings of Felix himself!

Other Felix titles include Felix the Fast Tractor and the coal delivery and Felix the Fast Tractor helps to find Ben.

Synopsis

Felix The Fast Tractor And The New Building by Catherine Cannon

"Felix the Fast Tractor and the New Building" is the first in a series of stories about a helpful tractor. Follow Felix and his friends as they construct a new building on the farm - but what will it be used for? That's a secret!

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.”
