Follow the hard-working tractor on its journey as it plows, sows, and harvests the fields throughout the course of a year. With a whole host of farm machinery to pore over, as well as Susan Steggall's signature subplots — look out for the dog-walking couple in the background — this richly illustrated book will be read time and time again.

The author of The Diggers Are Coming, Rattle and Rap, On the Road, The Life of a Car, Busy Boats, and Red Car, Red Bus, Susan Steggall uses intricate collages made of different sorts of manufactured and handmade papers to create her illustrations. She lives in Hampshire, U.K.Review:
'Across pages of torn-paper collage that seem to leap off the paper, the large-format double-page spreads showcase the changing landscape around the farm with close-ups of brightly coloured machinery. A delightful book that will stand up to repeated readings on a lap or in a group setting.' Kirkus Reviews (starred review *)
'Many a reader will love this book...keen searching of the delightful collages will reveal many sub-plots...this is so much more than a book about a tractor. It is celebratory, following the seasons, the creatures and the humans that inhabit the farm... Find a copy!' Books for Keeps (five starred review)
'The boldly coloured pictures are beautiful...The book's large size and vivid spreads make it an excellent choice for storytimes, and its clear font and simple rhyming text make it a good early- reader choice. Recommended for all kids who love farms and big vehicles.' School Library Journal
'Steggall's collage illustrations are tactile enough that readers will try and feel them. The clever artwork brings vividness to an engaging process story. Expect a good amount of lingering' Booklist
