Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A boy's love of trains and dinosaurs meet up in a fabulous fantasy ride in Gurney's debut picture book.....the illustrations mine a deep well of childhood enthusiasm for a Jurasic cast and adventures on the rails.
Kirkus Review
Thursday was a day much like any other for Jesse. Trains and dinosaurs. Dinosaurs and trains.' In a brisk, bright, solo debut, Gurney combines these two near-universal obsessions; Just as Jesse is getting ready for bed, a huge spikey tail extends through the window, and the call comes: 'ALL ABOARD!' Who could resist? Off Jesse rides on a train filled with enormous dinos of diverse, recognizable sorts, all sporting a range of human attire from business suits to blue jeans. The train is derailed when everyone rushes to one side to view an exploding volcano, but with Jesse's help, it's soon back on track, steaming bedroom-wards with a Tyrannosaurus engineer perched atop the boiler. The author gives his towering prehistoric passengers a friendly look, and depicts them with a crisp precision enhanced by white or plain-colored backgrounds. Here's a train that will never want for pajama-clad passengers-no ticket required.
Children's Literature
This is another fun dinosaur offering written and illustrated by the author. The book's main character is Jesse, who loves trains and dinosaurs. What a surprise when after a day of play, he is suddenly invited to climb out his window on a stegosaurus tail and join a trainload of various dinosaurs. Children will have fun naming all the kinds of dinosaurs. The train tips over when the dinosaurs all lean on one side to view a volcano erupting, but they use their strength to put the train upright and continue on their trip. This could easily be used in an early reader program. A colorful and charming book. 2002, Harper Collins Publishers,
— Barbara Youngblood
School Library Journal
PreS-Jesse thinks about, dreams of, and lives for two things: dinosaurs and trains. One night, he hears a loud noise and feels the house shake, and, with a cry of "ALL ABOARD!," the boy finds himself embarking on an exciting train ride with all sorts of dinosaurs, eating and having a small adventure with them. The story is slight, but it's the idea of enjoying a good time with benign happy dinos, together with the brilliantly colored and lovingly detailed illustrations, that will stay with young readers and probably spark many requests for bedtime repetitions.-Marian Drabkin, formerly at Richmond Public Library, CA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Fabulous Illustrations, pure imagination.

    My 4 year old son loves Dinosaur Train, he loves looking at the illustrations and telling me what he imagines all the characters are saying and thinking. The story itself is very bare bones, but that's okay. I think of it as one of those great wordless picture books.

    Story not as good as the illustrations

    Too bad...the pictures are great, but the writing is poor. The story could have been told better. I do not recommend this book.
