Book Synopsis

Winner at the 2013 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards. A fun, original tale that invites us to open our minds and free our spirits, seeing things the way a child sees them: as they really are.

A tractor came chugging down the road. Its noisy engine prevented its driver from hearing all the negative comments and reproaches people yelled as she drove past. Of course, considering the silly things some people say, sometimes it's better when there's lots and lots of noise! This funny woman, a farmer by profession, drove up and down with her trusty vehicle, looking empowered and proud of her job: agriculture. Many adult citizens she encountered along the way didn't understand the extravagance and the uniqueness of this special and original driver. However, when a child saw her and yelled "Hi there, lady on the tractor!", the tractor came to a halt and the lady turned off the motor and marveled at that freshness, that free spirit that only children transmit.

Review Quotes

"Mar Pavón and Nívola Uyá present an ingenious witty story that humorously vindicates the role of women in areas where it is still surprising to see them, such as agricultural work. A picture book that encourages readers to choose their destiny freely and without prejudice." --Canal Lector

"A Very, Very Noisy Tractor is an original and funny story with a playful text that inevitably brings to mind the well-known saying "Sticks and stones". It is that in situations like the one presented, only children, with their open mind and their free spirit, see things as they are and, for that very reason, they deserve to be heard." --Un periodista en el bolsillo

Nívola Uyà is a Spanish award-winning illustrator and visual artist, with a degree in Environmental Sciences. She loves nature as much as illustration and, whenever possible, combines both worlds. She makes illustrations for books, campaigns, audiovisuals and murals, as well as illustration and creativity workshops in many corners of the world, convinced that the creative process brings out the best in people and makes us more sensitive.

With a palette of luminous colors and a magical-realistic style, she likes to capture possible and optimistic worlds, that spread love and hope.
