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.

Reviews

[A] lively, sure-to-please winner . . . Details are perfect, down to the brothers

Truck and machinery fans will dig this. Kirkus Reviews

The joyful acrylic illustrations and the sparse, confident text will delight other digger-wannabes. Booklist

The book's most distinctive note, however, lies in having the narrator employ his construction dream world as a means of connecting with his sibling, rather than escaping from him. Publishers Weekly



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.
