Have you ever wondered how a toaster works? Or a fridge-freezer, or a washing-up machine? In this fun-filled book of how things work, Dudley, the techno-wizard dog, provides the answers. Roger McGough's delightfully ingenious text and Chris Riddell's striking illustrations take children from the furthest realms of fantasy into the fascinating world of technology to discover the workings of familiar machines, making it an exciting book which will delight again and again.

Two of the most inventive talents in children's literature, poet Roger McGough and illustrator Chris Riddell use their unique skills for entertaining and inspiring young readers to introduce them to the secrets of the technology around them.
