Space Shuttle is preparing to launch into space to collect and replace a broken satellite! Will Commander Mandy succeed in the mission and who will they meet?


It’s time to get busy with machines that race, vroom and zoom! This vibrant series is designed to excite playful pre-schoolers.

Each story features a popular vehicle as the central character, and involves a group of animal characters in a supporting role. 

A detailed spread on different parts of the vehicle will help children to understand what makes up the machines and help familiarise them with vehicle vocabulary and noises.
