Book
A picture book for the very young that celebrates a child's excitement for construction vehicles

"Honk the horn!
Flash the lights!
Scoop the rocks!
Push the mud!"

A little boy imagines driving a great big digger-scooping and pushing mud to make a playground for his baby brother.

Children are fascinated with bulldozers, backhoes, payloaders-diggers of all shapes and sizes. In this playful picture book, simple alliterative language and bold, colorful images capture a child's love of building and creating.

Praise for Digger Man

A Book Sense "Children's 76 Winter 2003 - 2004" title

"The joyful acrylic illustrations and the sparse, confident text will delight other digger-wannabes." --Booklist

"Truck and machinery fans will dig this." --Kirkus Reviews

"The book's most distinctive note, however, lies in having the narrator employ his construction dream world as a means of connecting with his sibling, rather than escaping from him." --Publishers Weekly

"Another lively, sure-to-please winner." --School Library Journal
