Book Description
Construction-equipment loving boys and girls will adore this humourous twist on the

classic nursery rhyme. Someone has done a lot of work building a house. Someone has

been operating a cement mixer, driving a bulldozer, and using a forklift to build walls,

frame windows, and nail down a roof. Someone has built a big, strong home for Jack.

But is this the house that Jack built? One tired puppy dog disagrees in this story about

getting what you work for.
