Moles, dogs, worms, rabbits, pirates, and mice are all digging holes. And so is the man with a plan. But he feels like a mouse or a mole because his digging is taking far too long. Finally, he calls for an excavator – the digger – that will dig the big hole he needs.
The digger goes under the city, under the river, and into the green country beyond. A train goes through the hole and through the green country, until it stops at a mountain. Then the digger is called on, once again, to dig through the mountain and let the train through.
Rhyming, repetition, and silly images fill the pages of this classic whimsical book. Kids will love reading The Diggers over and over again.
