A lively and colourful new paperback edition of this favourite by Susan Steggall, the successful author-illustrator of Life of a Car, On the Road, Rattle and Rap and Busy Boats, who uses her trademark vivid collage illustrations to bring a busy building site to life for young readers. Machine-mad readers will love this dramatic picture book which brings to life all the action and especially the noise of a building site. Susan Steggall’s brilliantly created 3D collage illustrations of wreckers wrecking and walloping; bulldozers shoving, shifting and shaving and diggers with massive metal mouths tearing the ground, all show how a building site is transformed into new homes. It’s a book that appeals to all senses.
The Diggers are Coming! by Susan Steggall
The diggers are coming! The diggers are coming, with massive metal mouths. Their teeth are tearing at the ground and their tracks trudge round and round and round. Follow all the people and vehicles involved in building a house - from the wreckers coming to clear the ground, through planners, bulldozers, diggers, tippers, mixers, trucks, builders, cranes, rollers and vans, to the people coming to move into the new houses.
