Synopsis

Tough Trucks by Tony Mitton

From rubbish trucks to concrete mixers, from tippers to tankers, this jolly picture book includes all different types of trucks. Machine-mad pre-schoolers can go along on a fantastic truck ride, learning about where the drivers eat and sleep while they are on the road. An audio CD attached to the inside back cover allows children to listen to the story and follow along with page turn cues. This popular picture book series makes learning about vehicles more fun than ever before. Each of the Amazing Machines books features lively rhyming text and bold, bright pictures of fun animal characters. A picture dictionary at the back of every book helps build vocabulary. Four Amazing Machines with CD were published in June 2007, and a further six titles will be published in October 2007.

About the Author

Tony Mitton

Tony Mitton was born in 1951 in North Africa, the son of a soldier. Until he was 9 he lived mostly in Africa, Germany and Hong Kong. He went to state boarding school in Suffolk and went on to do an English Literature degree at Cambridge University. He then trained to be an English teacher before making the switch to primary school teaching.

Tony worked as a primary school teacher between the ages of 25 to 49, but for the last 13 years of that period he taught part-time. During that period he began to spend 2 or 3 days a week working at his writing, and wrote poems and stories for school reading books and also for trade market books. He now writes full-time and visits lots of schools, libraries and events to talk about his work.

He lives in a small house in the middle of Cambridge with his wife and two children, and a cat called Tiggy, who is definitely one of the family. Tony likes Cambridge but he and his wife often wish they'd settled somewhere where there are better places for walking, like cliffs and hills with good views of the landscape.
