Product description

“Roger McGough’s witty text offers many weird and wonderful explanations … Chris Riddell’s artwork makes the whole an imaginative feast” – Bookseller

Runner-up for the English Association 4-11 Award for the Best Children’s Picture Book.

Nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

From the minds of the former Children’s Laureate Chris Ridell, and award-winning fellow of the Royal Society of Literature Roger McGough, comes a fun-filled book about how things work.

Have you ever wondered how a toaster works? Or a fridge-freezer, or a washing-up machine? In this fun-filled book of how things work, Dudley, the techno-wizard dog, provides the answers. Roger McGough’s delightfully ingenious text and Chris Riddell’s striking illustrations take children from the furthest realms of fantasy into the fascinating world of technology to discover the workings of familiar machines, making it an exciting book which will delight again and again.

At first, it describes how a child thinks things work… (gnomes in the toaster) and then Dudley tells you how the various household appliances really work. Includes all the appliances a curious child would be interested in: the dishwasher, the fridge-freezer and more.

A funny, imaginative ‘how things work’ book for ages 4-7.
