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, in this case, the building of a road. The format is simple and would lend itself to further books in a series.

Industry Reviews
Sutton's latest is a truck-lover's dream come true-repetition, rhyme and onomatopoeia form the text, while construction trucks vie for readers' attention in the illustrations. The result is a wonderfully noisy look at how roads are built. ...The level of detail matches the text's intended audience --enough to satisfy, not so much as to overwhelm. Pave the way to this book's shelf; perfect for read-alouds, it will be a hit whether shared with a group or one-on-one. * Kirkus Review *
Kids who love trucks and construction will find an ideal vehicle for their passions in this exuberant book from New Zealand. * Publisher's Weekly *
... lots of fabulous onomatopoeia...illustrations are bold and colourful. * Waikato Times *
The text is limited but what it lacks in plot it makes up for in enthusiasm and great illustrations. * The Sunday Age *
