Little Rusty Tractor’s Big Day! by Jacky Cripwell

This is a delightful story by one of our local authors, beautifully illustrated by Kate Smith.

It is set in the village of Bunny, on a small farm with a large shed containing two tractors, Big Green Tractor and Little Rusty Tractor. Poor Little Rusty Tractor had been left in the shed for years, while Big Green Tractor spent most of his days working out on the farm. All Little Rusty Tractor wished for was to be useful again and one special day, her dreams came true. Paperback, New Generation Publishing, 2016

Though aimed at pre-school children, this is also suitable as an early reader and it is “brought to life by the beautiful illustrations with much to look out for on every page”. (Review by Nicola) We totally agree!
