Sally Sutton's picture book Roadworks won the Picture Book category of the 2009 New Zealand Post Children's Book. Brian Lovelock's previous titles include Your Mother Didn't Do That!, The Rain Train and Roadworks.
The onomatopoeia in Sutton's simple rhyming text is appealingly extreme, and it's like a natural for listener repetition, though the verses could be more distinct from one another. Lovelock's bright pictures-in ink, acrylic and colored pencil-are a solid match. Smashing good fun for preschoolers of both genders. * Kirkus Reviews *
