Synopsis

Arthur's Tractor by Pippa Goodhart

Arthur's tractor ploughed up and down, chugga thrum, chugga thrum, chugga, chugga ...CRASH! Poor Arthur! However much he oils and twists and sharpens, there always seems to be something wrong with his tractor. But Arthur is concentrating so hard on his tractor that he doesn't notice a very exciting magical story that is happening all around him! Huge amounts of detail in this entertaining picture book mean that on each re-reading the reader will discover something new. Perfect for children who love machines - and fairy tales! A hilarious romp' Independent on Sunday 'Huge amounts of detail in this picture book mean that on each re-reading your toddler will discover something new. Great for kids and adults alike! Baby and You

Reviews

'The words of this book simply tell Arthur's problems, luckily we've got the amusingly detailed pictures to show all the exciting events surrounding him. Will Arthur ever discover them as well? You'll have to read it to find out. There's so much to discuss it cries out to be shared.'

'Arthur's Tractor yokes a farmer with fairy tales in a hilarious romp by Pippa Goodheart. Boys and girls will adore the way Arthur remains preoccupied with his machine while a princess gets chased by a dragon, and absent-mindedly save the day... If only love were as simple and sensible as it is in picture books...'

'Huge amounts of detail in this picture book mean that on each re-reading your toddler will discover something new. Great for kids and adults alike!'

'A funny story with lots of intriguing details to explore in the jokey pictures, and a text enlivened by lots of delicious chugga-thrum engine noises.'

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

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!
