LoveReading View on Felix The Fast Tractor And The Coal Delivery

Wonderful simple text interspersed with some bright bold illustrations as well as some useful fact wheels will provide hours of entertainment at any time of the day or night. When snow seems to get the better of a coal delivery, yes you’ve guessed it; felix is on hand to save the day.
Every once in a while a children’s book character comes along that really captures the imagination of its audience, garnering a legion of loyal fans eager for the next instalment of their particular hero’s adventure.   We all know, by first name, a postman and his black and white cat (Pat, oh and Jess, of course), an explorer and her best friend Boots the monkey (Dora, who else?), a builder and his team of mechanical chums (Bob, how could you forget?) and the fireman from the Welsh Valleys with the bright, clean engine (could only be, Sam).  But how familiar are you with a kind, friendly, super clever, shiny blue tractor from Ambers Farm?  His name is Felix, Felix the Fast Tractor.
 
Other Felix titles include Felix the Fast Tractor and the New Building and Felix the Fast Tractor helps to find Ben.

Felix The Fast Tractor And The Coal Delivery Synopsis

Felix the fast tractor lives on a farm with the Story family and Ben the dog in the village of Glempsea. He is a caring and kind tractor, who is not only fast in the 'speed' sense, but he thinks fast too. Follow Felix as he helps with a delivery of coal in snowy weather - but will it get there in time?

Felix lives with the Story family near the village of Glempsea where he plays a vital role in the running of this busy working farm along with a host of farmyard friends including the farm dog Ben, Colin the Combine Harvester and Daisy the Digger.  His adventures centre on everyday farming events - covering many aspects of British agricultural living; from the building of a new barn, to the harvesting of wheat, dealing with the temperamental weather, and helping the Story family find their beloved missing dog. 

More factually accurate than other titles of this genre, helpful ‘want to know more?’ sections appear every couple of pages, while featuring colourful characters, appealing storylines and delightful illustrations, perfect for this age group.
