Synopsis

Amazing Machines Tremendous Tractors by Tony Mitton

From aeroplanes to fire engines, the internationally bestselling Amazing Machines series is the perfect way for preschoolers to learn about all sorts of different machines and things that go! Every book introduces a new vehicle and features a zippy rhyming text, bright, colourful artwork, and the same friendly animal characters each time.There's even a helpful picture glossary at the end to recap any new words and technical terms.

Tremendous Tractors follows the animal crew as they become farmers. Climb on board to discover all the different jobs tractors can do around the farm. Every page is full of the kind of detail that machine-mad toddlers love: ploughs, sturdy combine harvesters, trailers, balers and so much more!

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.
