Dig, Dump, Roll

By Sally Sutton
Illustrated by Brian Lovelock

Guess what kind of truck is at work in this interactive book by the bestselling creators of Roadworks.

Crash-a-rumble Smash-a-grumble What’s at work? Here’s a clue: It will clear the ground for you. Bulldozer! Coming through! This is the follow-up to Roadworks that will delight tiny truck enthusiasts. It's an engaging, interactive text that asks readers to guess what kind of vehicle is at work. Visual clues alongside the text help ensure that our readers are challenged but can still be successful with their guesses. In the end, the vehicles work together to build a surprise.

  • This is an expansion on our already-successful Roadworks brand, but it will also delight toddlers who love vehicles and haven't been introduced to Roadworks yet.
  • The interactive format and rhyming text make this a strong read-aloud that is just as effective when read one-on-one as it is when read in front of a classroom.
  • Bright colours, bold text and a graphic design make this an eye-catching package that truck-lovers and their big people will not be able to miss.
