Here's what you say about us...

Having initially trained as a graphic designer,Susan Steggallbecame a primary school teacher and taught young children for several years. After having her own two boys, she began work in a school library where she enjoyed finding out about new authors and illustrators and selecting beautiful new books for the shelves. As her boys grew up, she started making all sorts of pictures for them of the cars, trucks and trains they found so fascinating. After lots of experiments, the idea of using torn coloured and textured paper evolved. She lives in the New Forest in Hampshire. Her other titles for Frances Lincoln areThe Life of a Car,On the Road,Rattle and Rap,Busy BoatsandRed Car, Red Bus.

“Steggall’s use of color makes stars of her machines; the buildings and ground, with scant greenery, are in earth tones, while gleaming bright vehicles—in orange and bold yellow and blue—really pop in her textured collages. Her text has lots of phonic and onomatopoeic crunch as well. Perfect for the very young truck fanatic.”
