A fantastic first concept book about colours, featuring 20 vehicles from bulldozers and trucks to tippers and diggers, and showing ten different colours. There's a wheel to turn on the final spread, where the child can match vehicles to colours, for extra interactive learning and fun. By the FL star of vehicles books and all things on wheels - Susan Steggall.

SUSAN STEGGALL initially trained as a graphic designer, but then became a primary school teacher and taught young children for several years. After having her own two boys, she began work in a school library where she enjoyed finding out about new authors and illustrators and selecting beautiful new books for the shelves. As her boys grew up, she started making all sorts of pictures for them of the cars, trucks and trains they found so fascinating. After lots of experiments, the idea of using torn coloured and textured paper evolved. Susan lives in the New Forest in Hampshire.

"From the large, arresting images of vehicles to the playful wheel addendum, this uncommonly engaging truck book offers a subtle, versatile approach to colors." - Booklist, starred review

"This offering combines an introduction to colors with depictions of a progression of vehicles...vibrant, paper-collaged illustrations are overlaid on plain, brightly colored, contrasting backgrounds; red painted vehicles appear on yellow and blue pages, yellow on tan, purple on yellow." - Kirkus

"Steggall fuses [common picture book] themes into something different, something more-a introduction to the color wheel that bypasses explanation in favor of demonstration." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
