This book is designed to support poor readers by giving them overtly adult material but where the language has been calculated using a reading age scale on a computer program. Read about Ferguson’s innovative engineering invention of the three-point hitch and how it became an international standard for tractors and still remains so today. This was engineering genius at its best. So much so that Henry Ford Senior ( of Ford cars) placed Harry Ferguson alongside the Wright Brothers ( flight), Edison (the light bulb) and Bell (the telephone), it really was that important with 85% of the world’s tractors basing their engineering on his unique ideas. We also read about how the little Grey Fergie saved a town from a disaster and we read of the Scandinavian children’s film franchise `Little Grey Fergie’. The material in this book should be accessible to an year 8 student and as such should be ideal reading material for the vast majority of students in schools and F.E. colleges. This book is in a series on old technology and is specifically designed to develop reading in teenage males. We were asked by a Midlands College to provide something that encouraged young males to read, since they were literally not reading anything.
