Synopses & Reviews
"All aboard!" calls the station master. So starts a magical train ride with Jango Jenkins and his Dixieland Band, Oscar the magician, Miss Trixie and her pug dog Napoleon. This is about what happens when a pleasant journey goes all wrong. The pug goes missing. The bridge ahead is missing. And, the handle on the train brake is broken. Only in Monkey World can the solution to this pickle involve shedding all weight to attempt to fly the train!
