Synopsis

The Big Concrete Lorry by Shirley Hughes

A picture book for children of three years and up. The Pattersons' house is so jam-packed with things that there's hardly room for the Pattersons themselves. But building an extension is no easy matter, even with the neighbours' help - and especially when the concrete is the quick-setting kind!
