Synopses & Reviews
"The big steam train goes, CHUGGA chugga chugga CHUGGA chugga chugga CHOO CHOOOOOOO!" The diesel train goes, "zooosh zooosh ZOOOOOOOOSH ding ding ding!" The American goes, "clang clang clang TOOT TOOT!" All aboard! Take a trip on eight noisy trains as they huff, puff, and toot-toot their way through this lively board book! Perfect for the young train enthusiast.
"Light returns to the format of his 2008 Trucks Go in a stylish board book with a squat, wide trim size that mimics its subject matter: trains of all varieties. Two things vie for attention in each spread: Light's blithe, loose watercolor portraits of the trains that speed across the pages, and the boisterous noises that each of the trains makes, which appear in big, brightly colored fonts. A vintage blue and black streamliner goes 'wo wooo woooooo,' a TGV-speed train whooshes past, and an old steam train makes a 'clang, clang, clang, toot toot!' Each of Light's trains has a distinct personality, and locomotive lovers will clang, chug, and puff along with them as they make their way along the tracks. Up to age 3."
