I love the Digger series! In their latest adventure, the big machines are visited by two raccoons who are ready for a rip-roaring good time each evening, making it hard for Digger and the gang to complete their daytime tasks. A sweet display of kindness and thinking of others.

— Rae Ann

From popular author-illustrator Joseph Kuefler comes the perfect bedtime book for fans of big trucks. The ideal next book for readers of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and Steam Train, Dream Train.

After a long day’s work, Digger and the other big trucks are ready to tuck themselves into bed. They wash, they brush, and they sing a goodnight song. But before they can fall asleep, two mischievous raccoons appear. And they are not tired—at all.

Surely, just a few more minutes of playtime won’t hurt...will it?
