Up to Something


This picture book explores the father-son relationship as well as the power of imagination and creativity, and the satisfaction to be gained from recycling and making things ourselves.

One day, Dad invites Billy into his shed to build something, but Billy soon finds out that he is only allowed to watch. As Dad becomes engrossed in his project, Billy takes Dad's offcuts and other items from around the yard and shed and starts to copy what his Dad is building. Dad remains blissfully unaware! At the end of the day, they reveal their creations " two very different racing carts " and Dad discovers that Billy has more skills and abilities than his dad had ever imagined! Joining forces, Dad and Billy set out as a team to build a cart together " the best one yet " and enter the upcoming local cart race.
