Irresistible for anyone mad about trucks! There’s so much to learn about the extraordinary world of trucks and truck-mad William Bee is the man to explain it all.  There are steam trucks, amphibious trucks, rescue trucks, snow plough trucks, fire engine trucks and much, much more.

William Bee's Wonderful World of Trucks Synopsis

Now in paperback and with a fresh new cover!

William Bee loves his trucks. He has lots, and if you're lucky he'll show you some of them and tell you all about them. There's his tanker truck, which carries all the fuel he needs for his vehicles - in fact it holds enough fuel for 650 cars! Then there's his coal-fired steam truck, his amphibious truck, which can swim, his truck with its very own crane and his snow-blowing truck, plus the truck that carries all of his racing cars, and not forgetting his jet-powered truck that can reach 370mph! And that's just the beginning of his collection.

Join William, his dog and his gang of unruly traffic cones on a grand tour of the world of trucks. Perfect for every child who is fascinated by vehicles large and small - but mainly large! And can you spot the toy rabbit hidden on every double page spread? Peep Peep!
