Book recommendation: “The night worker” by Kate Banks, illustrated by Georg Hallensleben

I read this childrens’ book in its German translation, “Nachts auf der Baustelle”.  I have been fascinated by the accurate and yet dream-like illustrations, the richness of technical words in simple sentences, the nightly atmosphere of the construction site. I could almost feel the freshness of the air, the silent city around, the noise of machines, the starred sky.

It makes a great present for a child, or an adult who loves construction sites and proudly defines himself an umarell.
