Hit Entertainment and Haynes have joined forces to create the Bob the Builder Owners' Workshop Manual.
Launching today (September 1st), the manual includes full colour cutaway drawings showing what's inside all of the machines, as well as explaining how they work, what they do and how they help build and repair things for the people of Fixham Harbour.
Readers can also learn about hydraulics, caterpillar tracks and more in the regular fact files.
"We're delighted to have teamed up with Haynes once again to launch a workshop manual for Bob the Builder," said Katie Price, senior director of worldwide publishing at Hit. "In 2009 we launched a Haynes manual for another Hit brand, Thomas & Friends, and this proved hugely popular with fans. We are confident this new manual for Bob will be equally well received."
Jeremy Yates Round, MD of Haynes Publishing, added: "The classic Haynes Manual is well recognised and much loved by many a motorist. In recent years, we've enjoyed great success with manuals on fictional vehicles, giving the Haynes treatment to everything from Thomas the Tank Engine to Star Trek's USS Enterprise.
"The new Bob the Builder Manual gives children and adults alike an insight into how these inventions might actually work."
