A boisterous picture book full of noisy fun for machine-mad kids. Roadworks is made with machine-mad pre-school boys in mind, though girls will also love the exciting noise-words, rhythms and rhymes. Roadworks aims to differ from other machine books in that it shows an actual project being completed from start to finish. Includes a pictorial glossary of all the vehicles with a short caption of what each machine does. Picture Book Category Winner, New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards, 2009.
