"Load the dirt, load the dirt, scoop and swing and drop. Slam it down into the truck. Bump! Whump! Whop! Tip the stones, tip the stones, lift and slide and dump. Lay the groundwork for the road. Crash! Roar! Thump!"
'Roadworks' takes the reader through all the stages of making a road; from planning to construction to driving on the finished road, the full journey is detailed for young and curious minds with a rhythmic text and bright illustrations.
