Digger Dog, a benign looking canine with good driving skills, is not deterred when his first attempt to unearth what he knows is a really juicy bone is foiled. From spades he advances to a small digger, then a bigger digger, then the biggest digger in the whole world. A very satisfying book to read aloud with no unfamiliar words to trip over. Any child based audience will be bound to join in with enthusiasm.

William Bee, the author of Digger Dog, writes his books on his various typewriters – including a classic Royal Sabre and a pair of Smith Corona Super Gs. His work has been displayed in museums in the UK and in Japan.

  1. This looks like the perfect present for my 2-1/2 year old grandson Max, whose first word was (much to my daughter's chagrin) wasn't "Mum' or "Dad" but "digger"! Hope it comes out in paperback...
