Listing Detail Tabs

James and Henry always played their livelier games in a corner by the old scrap yard in their neighbourhood. James was an excitable boy by nature, and so it was hardly surprising that they had not been playing there very long before he sent the ball flying over the fence, away into the yard itself.

Venturing into the forbidden territory to retrieve the ball, the boys discovered a treasure hoard indeed: abandoned vehicles and assorted car parts of varying shapes and sizes and colours. Both boys were seized with longing to make out of the contents of the yard a car of their own.

Doreen Roberts' picture-book shows how the two boys realized their plan, with the unexpected help of the manager of the yard himself. It brings to life the satisfactory process of making something, and the intriguing world of the scrap yard and possesses the warmth and feeling that come come to be associated with this artist's work.
