picture book junkie’s Perfect PB Friday Pick: Arthur’s Tractor

Arthur’s Tractora fairy tale with mechanical parts

Author: Pippa Goodhart
Illustrator: Colin Paine
Publication Info: Bloomsbury Children’s Books, 2003
Age level: 4 and up
Genre: fiction, picture book

This book has rhythm: Arthur’s tractor ploughed up and down, chugga thrum, chugga thrum, chugga, chugga …. CRASH!

I love surprises in a book and this one is loaded. I don’t want to spoil anything, so I’ll leave you with this – Poor Arthur! A farmer on his tractor, something sounds ‘off’, he figures and fixes – but Arthur is so focused on his tractor he doesn’t notice the magical story creeping up on him!
