Wheels

By Sally Sutton
Illustrated by Brian Lovelock

An ode to things-that-go from the internationally bestselling creators of Roadworks.

Rumbly wheels, grumbly wheels, Hauling-up-the-hill wheels. Wheels go fast, wheels go slow. Shout what’s coming, if you know! On the heels of Dig, Dump, Roll, comes another interactive read-aloud from Sally Sutton and Brian Lovelock. In this story, a boy and his sister watch vehicles pass on a town street and have to guess what's coming, each time they see the wheels. In the end, they get to be the ones with wheels, as they ride their scooters away.
