Description

Feel the excitement, hear the sounds, watch rough, tough wheels in action! Rough, Tough Wheels are large, powerful monsters on wheels that perform the jobs too big for most machines.

This series presents big, strong vehicles that can build roads, tow or flatten entire cars, dig up and plant trees, or haul big loads. They rumble and roar as they carry out tasks that require sheer force of strength and size.

Editorial Reviews

“[Pearson’s] boisterous imagery ... appeals to children’s intense curiosity ... [The] soft illustrations are perfect for the intended audience because they capture a young child’s excitement and curiosity without being overly technical.”—Resource Links


“The text is on par with the excellent illustrations ...Careful thought has been given to the captions with a view to summarizing the look, sound, smell, and feel of the vehicles that is very appealing. The text is replete with words that roll off the tongue and encourage variation in tone and volume. Highly recommended.”—Canadian Book Review Annual


“Highly recommended for home, classroom and library use ... destined to be a well-loved, dog-eared favorite.” —Canadian Reviews


“Listen closely and you can hear the rumble of the grader. Breathe deeply and you can smell the wet asphalt the monster roller is laying down.”—The Globe and Mail
