Review quote

'The words of this book simply tell Arthur's problems, luckily we've got the amusingly detailed pictures to show all the exciting events surrounding him. Will Arthur ever discover them as well? You'll have to read it to find out. There's so much to discuss it cries out to be shared.' Primary Times 'Arthur's Tractor yokes a farmer with fairy tales in a hilarious romp by Pippa Goodheart. Boys and girls will adore the way Arthur remains preoccupied with his machine while a princess gets chased by a dragon, and absent-mindedly save the day... If only love were as simple and sensible as it is in picture books...'
