'Little kids love to move and race and dig, and this book by illutsrator Orsini will help them with just that. A great book to share with little ones just before sending them out to play in the backyard, it vividly depicts how all sorts of machines move and work ... Orsini beautifully creates a lively game of pretend, with bright colours and movement providing inspiration for active outdoor games.' Weekend West, Perth [of THE ABC BOOK OF CARS, TRAINS, BOATS AND PLANES] 'Cheryl Orisini's illustrations are typically gorgeous - a real feast for the eyes. Charming and whimsical, I love her use of colour and detail. I personally have only a moderate interest in machines (having already passed through my toddler years) but even I want to know more just by ogling these beautiful pictures.' kids-bookreview.com [of POM POM] 'Cheryl Orsini's absolutely divine illustrations are some of my favourite in a picture book this year. From the endpapers, through the book proper and the covers, too, her utterly whimsical illustrations are so eye-engaging, it's a delight to turn each page and witness a new surprise.' blog.boomerangbooks.com.au
