Amazing Machines

Front Cover

Whizzing and whistling, rumbling and grumbling, sloshing and squelching, flashing and crashing- the witty and wacky animal crew is back with four amazing machines all ready to leap from the pages of this rambunctious picture book. Young children won't be able to get enough of the bright, bold, and zany illustrations, and will find the rhyming text so irresistable they will want to hear it over and over again. An informative, illustrated glossary answers all their questions about trains, diggers, fire engines, and rockets.
