Sutton and Lovelock have their snappy transport-themed picture books down to a fine art and this latest is the fifth book in the "series".
Featuring their trademark staccato rhyme and vibrant illustrations, Dig, Dump, Roll will thrill machine-mad youngsters with plenty of action words and an element of surprise as they are invited to guess what the next machine will be and what will be built this time. A page of basic facts about the machine parts is included.
Plus, there's a free yellow hard hat (not too hard) with the purchase of each book (while stocks last). Other titles are the award-winning Roadworks, Construction, Demolition and Ambulance Ambulance - all available in board book or paperback editions.
Roadworks is also available in te reo Maori - Mahiara - and Spanish - Construir una Carretera, while both Construction and Demolition are available in Spanish editions - Construyendo and Demolicion.
