Discover the things that go that are hiding on the pull-the-tab sliders in this hardback novelty board book for children aged 3+.

Featuring bold, full colour illustrations of cars, trucks, boats, aeroplanes and many more vehicles, the different types of transport in this book have been crafted to look like embroidered textile elements and will help to introduce young children to machines from the wider world and will teach important first words, too. Ten sturdy novelty pull-tabs add to the preschool learning fun and discovery.

Illustrated by Steph Hinton, the pull-the-tab range of books by Top That Publishing was a finalist in the Best Preschool Publishing range at the Progressive Preschool Awards. The high-quality cover finish and robust board book pages are perfect for little hands and make the books ideal as gift purchases.

When Sally's not tending to chickens, a donkey, Gloucester old spot pigs and other animals on her smallholding in Suffolk, UK, she can be found in her studio at the bottom of the orchard, inventing new children's books. After leaving art college in the 1980's, she started her career at a local screen printing workshop before moving into advertising, working for various agencies across Europe. In 1998 she returned to Suffolk, bought a rundown farmhouse, and spent the next three years turning it into a family home with her husband Peter, and children Sophie and Matthew.
