An ode to things-that-go from the internationally bestselling creators of Roadworks.

Rumbly wheels, grumbly wheels, Hauling-up-the-hill wheels. Wheels go fast, wheels go slow. Shout what's coming, if you know!

On the heels of Dig, Dump, Roll, comes another interactive read-aloud from Sally Sutton and Brian Lovelock. In this story, a boy and his sister watch vehicles pass on a town street and have to guess what's coming, each time they see the wheels. In the end, they get to be the ones with wheels, as they ride their scooters away.

Reviews for Wheels

With a vibrant, child-friendly style and eye-catching tones, mixed with the effervescent technique of splashes and flicks - brilliantly representing a road-like and wheel-splash-like quality (plus fantastic tyre-mark tracks in the endpapers)... fans of the series will be absolutely delighted with this presentation and language experience. Offering great scope for discussion, including a graphic of the parts of a wheel in the back of the book, toddlers and pre-schoolers are sure to roll out WHEELS over and over again. * CBCA: Reading Time * Wheels is perfect for sharing with the littlest vehicle enthusiasts, and will keep them enthralled. * Kids Book Review * Highly recommended... sure to be another book to please both boys and girls * Wheels *
