Synopsis

The Gobble Gobble Moooooo Tractor Book by Jez Alborough

A wonderfully noisy picture book, featuring brand new characters, from the bestselling creator of Duck in the Truck. While Farmer Dougal sleeps, Sheep and his friends board the tractor and take turns making engine sounds. But what if their loud honks, moos and squeaks wake the farmer...? Children will love copying animal noises in this joyful story from the internationally renowned creator of 'Duck in the Truck' and 'Hug'.

Reviews

'With a nod to Dr. Seuss and a wink to John Burningham, Jez Alborough deals an irresistible lesson in rhyme and rhythm as well as storytelling, which is hugely entertaining.'
Child Education Reviews for Duck in the Truck:

'Rhyme, illustration, wit and inventiveness combine to produce outstanding quality.'
TES Primary

'Alborough's text is perfect for reading out loud and the mix of close-up and panoramic illustrations gives an animated, live-action feel.'
Junior

'Colourful, arresting and busting with action.'
Child Education Praise for Hit the Ball Duck:

'A really great story; the best Duck book so far.'
The Guardian
