Reader Reviews

Big Machines
A delightful book which we bought our 3 year old son to go on holiday with. It kept him entertained on the 2 hour flight and 2 months on, it is still his favourite book by miles! The detail in the information, the explanation and drawings are exemplary. This is a book that is simply a must for all young lovers of anything with engines!
