A Reptile On My Tractor, The Rampant Robot and other Stories by Graeme R. Quick

cover photo

This book has 50 episodes related to tractors and farm machines. It started out when the author began illustrating stories for some of his other books. The eclectic mix of cartoons and illustrations set off unusual associations.

Every one of these episodes originated with a real person or event. These are intended to be interesting to an audience wider than only people involved in agriculture. The episodes have been challenging and fun to illustrate.

Most of these episodes got their start with individuals who were personally visited or contacted for permission to use their story.

A proportion of royalties from our books is dedicated to the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) for humanitarian works.

Dr Graeme Quick is an internationally-recognized expert on farm equipment with a harvesting speciality. He has worked on farm machinery engineering in over thirty countries and holds fourteen patents, two of which are incorporated into grain harvesters sold worldwide. He has published a dozen books.

Dr Quick and his wife Marlene live on a small acreage in SE Queensland that is well-equipped with farm machines.
