Sam and the Construction Site

by Tjibbe Veldkamp & Alice Hoogstad
Lemniscaat, 2015
Originally published in the Netherlands

An extra-large book featuring extra-large construction equipment, this astonishing story features Sam who loves watching workers at the construction site.  Through a dare by bigger boys, Sam enters the site and runs to the steam roller like he’s on a mission.  He crushes a car.  Then he runs for the cement truck and pours cement; then he lifts a police car into the air.  Has he gone mad?  Not exactly, he’s stopping a crime in progress!  An astute reader may see clues in the illustrations, or it may come as a total surprise at the end when Sam saves the day with his apparent ‘path of destruction.’
