How things work.
on 25 July 2004
This delightful picture book by popular author and poet,Roger McGough, does for non fiction what sugar coating does for medicines! The book looks through the eyes of a child at the misconceptions of how certain appliances work, and the technicalities are explained by the loveable, cute and cuddly, Dudley!
An excellent text to work with in the primary classroom, as it exemplifies the features of this non-fiction genre, with clearly labelled, scientific diagrams. The illustrations throughout are engaging and fun, and readers who have enjoyed previous work by Chris Riddell will not be disappointed.
