Ten cool machines for machine-mad kids

Find out all about ten amazing trucks!

There are lots of ways machines can be cool. They can be the biggest, the smallest, the tallest, the longest and even the noisiest. Machine mad kids will love pouring over the details of ten awesome machines. Fantastic Five stat panels give the scoop on what makes these machines tick and key design features are highlighted to help you learn something new about your favourite diggers, tractors, trucks and emergency vehicles.

Perfect for readers who can't get enough of books about machines, but who have outgrown the simple picture books aimed at a much younger level. Those who are beginning to read by themselves will find the text fun to read and accessible. There are four books in the series: Trucks, Fire Engines & Emergency Vehicles, Diggers, and Tractors & Farm Machines.

For children aged 5+
