Xmas Gift Ideas for Vehicle-mad Kids

My boys are big-time vehicle fans, from playing in the mud with tractors to zooming cars down racetracks. And I have to admit that, working in publishing, I was surprised at the lack of good books for young children all about cars, tractors and monster trucks. It has improved in recent years – Miles Kelly has helped with this, of course! And there are plenty of vehicle toys out there for kids of all ages. Here's my shortlist…
