Big Machines by Angela Royston, Terry Pastor


Big Machines by Angela Royston, Terry Pastor

An exciting introduction to big machines on the road, on the farm and on the building site. Each machine is accompanied by very simple text, explaining what it does, and labels to identify the main features. Stunning airbrush illustrations make this a hugely attractive book for all young children who are interested in machines, and how they work.
