diggers

'The wreckers are coming! The wreckers are coming, they WHACK and they WALLOP and WHAM!' Then come the planners and diggers and tippers and builders, until in the end families arrive with their 'boxes and bundles and bags', ready to move into the new houses.

This is a marvellous book that captures the pace and excitement of change on the building site through rhythm, rhyme, repetition, rich onomatopoeic language and bold collage illustrations. Children will love it.
