By Thomas Taylor
Illustrated by John Kelly
A fun read-aloud story that is a perfect bedtime read, illustrated by Kate Greenaway shortlisted artist.
Jack takes a ride in his big red tractor with a trailer attached behind, picking up lots of fun animal friends along the way. But before long it gets dark and he's lost. Who will help him find the way home?
Born in Norfolk but raised in Wales, Thomas doodled his way through childhood until they let him into Norwich School of Art and Design. He then studied illustration at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge. His first commissioned work was the cover illustration for a then unknown book called Harry potter and the Philosopher`s Stone by J. K. Rowling. Since then Thomas has written and Illustrated many children`s picture books, and even written a few for others to illustrate. He lives in Normandy, France, where he shamelessly steals story ideas from his two little boys, Max and Benjy. John was born and brought up in northeast of England, though he's lived in London for the past twenty years. He has been a designer, visualiser and art director but now focuses on creating children's books. His first two picture books were shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal, and he's also been shortlisted for the BBC Books-to-read-out-loud Awards.
