The Diggers are Coming!

Publisher: Frances Lincoln

Susan Steggall's attractive picture books investigate technology and transport in an inventive way. The subject of this book is the building of a new estate, and it explores everything from the demolition of old properties, to planners creating new designs, to families moving into their new homes.

Each spread is bright, clear and engaging, with bold collaged illustrations in Steggall's signature style, and includes plenty of detail for readers to discover. Accompanying the illustrations are memorable, rhythmic phrases describing the actions of the machines and the people at work, which make this book enjoyable to read aloud.
