This self-styled little book actually manages to include photos and information on a huge number of tractors, enough to satisfy the most ardent tractor fan. Starting with the steam engines that replaced horses by the 1850s, it features traction engines, two and four wheeled tractors, combine harvesters and crop pickers. It explains the different tasks tractors are used for at home and in other parts of the world with clear photographs and short, informative lines of text. Concluding with a glossary and index it’s a useful and practical first information book and one that will please its intended audience very much. ~ Andrea Reece
