The Amazing Machines Series (Kingfisher) is made up of 10 books, which have been illustrated by Ant Parker. This is an information series about vehicles, written in verse with jolly animal characters. The animal characters make the books more fun.

 The books themselves have been re-released in larger format with CD readings of the text. They are also available as a set of miniature hardbacks contained in a cardboard presentation truck. A jigsaw book is made up from a set of extracts. The first four books were available in a cardboard package containing small plastic toys of some of the vehicles.

US versions of these books are available in America (with slightly different texts).
