The sixth title in the excellent colouring book series, this book about machines will appeal particularly to children with a mechanical bent, those who want to understand how things work. It features 30 simple black and white illustrations of machines, ready to be coloured in. A sentence or two of interesting information and facts accompanies each drawing.
A double-page colour insert shows colours and markings of the machines featured in All About New Zealand Machines and inventions. Aspiring young artists will have fun choosing new colour schemes for the machines and their creations can be easily removed from the book using the perforated pages.
