Synopsis

Digger Man by Andrea Zimmerman, David Clemesha

A little boy imagines driving a great big digger, scooping and pushing mud to make a playground for his baby brother. Children are fascinated with bulldozers, backhoes, payloaders - diggers of all shapes and sizes. In this playful picture book, simple alliterative language and bold, colourful images capture a child's love of building and creating.

About the Author

Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha have created several children's books together, including Fire Engine Man and Trashy Town, an ALA Notable Book. The inspiration for Digger Man came from their own three sons' fascination with diggers. Digger Man is the first book they have both written and illustrated. Andrea and David live in San Diego, California, with their family.
