The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is the perfect book for kids who go bonkers over big machines - well in that case it's virtually all boys, and their dads of course! It features some of the world's biggest machines found on building sites, farms, airports and dockyards including one of the biggest machines ever, the bucket-wheel excavator used in mining. For the biggest of machines, it includes two giant foldout pages.

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!
