NEW Paperback Picture Book : The Big Concrete Lorry by Shirley Hughes
The Patterson family is too cramped in their city row house and decides to add an extension. Families who have lived through household construction projects will identify with the children's anticipation and their excitement over the big trucks that deliver building materials. Dad and the neighbors dig the foundation, but the early delivery of a pile of wet cement dumped unceremoniously by the front door sends all scurrying to work before it hardens.
With her ink and colorful wash illustrations, Hughes concentrates readers' attention on the interior scenes, the multiracial neighborhood, and the help people give one another, rather than on the actual details of construction. As usual, Hughes makes city life warm and friendly while recounting from a child's point of view another memorable experience
