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.
