Tjibbe Veldkamp & Alice Hoogstad wrote and signed this beautiful picture book "Kom uit die Kraan!!", published by Lemniscaat.
Every day, Bert stands behind the fence of the building site and watches the steamroller, the cement truck and the crane in action. Bert would really like to drive the big machines himself. One day, he does and flattens a car with the steamroller, pours concrete on the road and even hoists a police car up by the crane! But surprisingly Bert is the hero of the day and deserves a reward. This is a picture book with a clever visual sub-plot. As soon as you reach the end, go back to the beginning to find all the picture clues and see Bert foil a bank robbery.
There’s so much for children to enjoy – the detailed illustrations of the machines in action, the chaos and of course the clever back-to-front solving of the mystery.
