Description - Bruiser by Gavin Bishop

Wonderful story for young children about a bold and brassy digger
Bruiser is a machine on a mission - a digger who's ploughing up hillsides, trampling down paddocks and crushing rocks in his plan to build a motorway. His motor roared like a dinosaur. His wheels squealed like an elephant. His sides rumbled like an earthquake. He shook his blade like an angry fist. Noise and energy abound! Until a little chick and a nest fall right in front of him - and Bruiser realises there's more to life than tearing up hillsides. He rescues the chick and builds the family a new nest. Bold, strong images combined with charming story plus lots of noise (!!) make this a winner.
