Synopsis

The Life of a Car by Susan Steggall

Follow the life of a car from the production line, to being sold, driven, cleaned, crashed, mended, scrapped and finally recycled to make ...another car! Featuring an assortment of brightly coloured vehicles including tow-trucks, transporters and lifting machines, this is the perfect book for all car and machine-mad readers. See if you can spot the little red mini from Susan's first book, ON THE ROAD, travelling through the book!

Reviews

Adding to a picture book series Susan Steggall's The Life of a Car (Frances Lincoln) will enthral budding drivers as they follow, quite literally and with very simple language, the life of a car from production line to recycling!

Brilliant in its simplicity -- most children will love this, especially any budding mechanics. What a simply splendid introduction to the life of a car... The pictures are bursting with colour and will encourage children to talk about their own experiences. An information story as interesting as lively as this will reinforce in young minds the message that print books can be exciting and relevant. || My four year old nephew loves this book because of the subject matter, the boldness of the text, the powerful bright colours, and the hunt for Susan's red mini from her first book ON THE ROAD in the illustrations... However, this is more than a book for would be Jeremy Clarksons! In addition to the cars and the trucks, the collage is effective at giving enough clues about the pedestrains for us to speculate about personalities and backgrounds. I recommend it for Early Years as it is attractive and full of interest.

About the Author

Susan Steggall

Having initially trained as a graphic designer, SUSAN STEGGALL became a primary school teacher and taught young children for several years. After having her own two boys, she began work in a school library where she enjoyed finding out about new authors and illustrators and selecting beautiful new books for the shelves. As her boys grew up, she started making all sorts of pictures for them of the cars, trucks and trains they found so fascinating. After lots of experiments, the idea of using torn coloured and textured paper evolved. Susan lives in the New Forest in Hampshire.

Her other titles include The Life of a Car, On the Road, Rattle and Rap, Busy Boats and Red Car, Red Bus.
