Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
A very young boy is apparently waiting for a train. He is sitting on a bench with his very prim looking mother. When the train arrives, he is ready to board—ticket in hand, backpack securely on and a paper bag that looks like it might be lunch. Once all are aboard; the train heads out. The scenery changes as the trip continues; first we see cows in pastures, farmers on tractors, then small towns, bridges and tunnels. In the meantime, the conductor has a real treat for our intrepid young traveler. He gets to visit the engineer and toot the train whistle. As the day draws to an end, so does the trip. The train arrives in the big city and grandma is apparently waiting for her young visitor, The story is a bit of fantasy, the train has a face like those found in the "Thomas the Tank Engine" books; and while it is well done, it seems a bit of a stretch that a child as young as the one pictured would be making a long train trip on his own. However, young ones will probably enjoy this vicarious experience. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—A young boy sets off on a solo train trip. As he climbs aboard, he takes in the new sights and sounds: "Capped conductor. Dark suit./Polished buttons. Crisp salute./Steel steps. People squeeze./Cloth seats. Tickets, please!'" The staccato stop and start iambic verse mimics the rhythm of the train. The child looks out the window at the passing fields, eats a snack, and asks, "Are we there yet?" To pass the time he "Chuff[s] up and down the aisles" and is even treated to a tour of the engine car and allowed to "Sound the whistle." At the final station, he finds his grandmother waiting. Andreasen's cartoon illustrations have a sentimental, homespun appeal. The anthropomorphized train has a wide, smiling face and even the whistle has goggle eyes and gives a friendly toot. While this offering may be too sweet for some train enthusiasts, the excitement of the journey rings true.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada
Kirkus Reviews

An exciting train trip from his suburban town to the big city for a visit with grandma proves to be enlightening for a young boy.

This small child, dangling feet from his perch on the station bench, lunch bag in hand, experiences the thrill of traveling alone. His day begins with a warm greeting from a blue-uniformed conductor and continues with the "all aboard" whistle, the rush of the train's mounting speed felt from a window seat, the special treat of being let into the engineer's car to "sound the whistle" and the grand view of the approaching star-filled city skyline. Finally, the day-long trip culminates with his grandmother's welcoming hug at the station. Gouache, Disney-esque cartoon drawings in understated colors provide a cheery, cherubic, wide-eyed cast of characters—complete with a rounded frontal view of a "little engine that could" smiling face. It's definitely a nostalgic view of a contemporary adventure. How many young children would be permitted to travel alone these days? The succinct, rhyming text is created with sentences of no more than two to four words each, which gives an appropriately trainlike rhythm to the narrative and supports emergent literacy skills in toddlers.

Little train lovers will be happy to travel along as this choo-choo rumbles along the tracks.(Picture book. 2-4)
