What child doesn’t marvel at the sheer size and length of transport vehicles? In this non-fiction picture book, children learn how trucks are loaded and unloaded, how these giant vehicles are towed and repaired – and what it’s like to spend the night in a semi-trailer. Numerous flaps allow children to look into the engine compartment, load the cargo area with a forklift or empty the bed of a dump truck. A new favourite book for little vehicle and technology enthusiasts.
