Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“… this bruiser will likely see plenty of use.” —Kirkus Reviews
Kirkus Reviews
With testosterone fairly vibrating from its pages, this vertically oriented, slightly oversized book celebrates Big Machines That Go Vroom, including a semi, a dump truck, a fire engine, a backhoe, a pickup and a concrete mixer: "This is a very useful truck / With an important job to do, / Mixing up the concrete / And delivering it too!" The uneven doggerel is paired with a photograph of each machine, which appears against a bright, two-toned background and features some touch-and-feel element. The semi has a corrugated grille, the dump truck carries a load of sandpaper sand. A couple are pretty lame-the fire engine has shiny foil lights, the pickup a similarly shiny grill-and appeal more to the eye than the fingers, but overall, this bruiser will likely see plenty of use. (Ages 1-2)

Meet the Author


Roger Priddy's passion for educating children through fun, informative and engaging books has led him to create some of publishing's most enduring and successful nonfiction early learning books. Roger lives in London and has three children, who have been the inspiration behind many of his best publishing ideas.

Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification—in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator. His first job in children's books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK's Children's Division and was Managing Director of the children's mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.

In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martin's Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books—My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends—each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers; and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards. Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.
