Trains That Climb the Winter Tree based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
This story is imaginative, but so disjointed and bizarre that it is difficult to follow. The adults are all murdered? By elves? The dog is actually a drunk and the Grim Reaper is named Lord Snow -- complete with white suit? What in the name of good literature is any of this about? The characters are shallow and not believable. They have no motivation. The story line is impossible to follow. The children travel in time on the train, and mature into adults with no benefit of wisdom or guidance. And in a sudden moment of clarity, the little girl realizes she is an adult and she magically knows the answer to the all important question. The whole thing is ill-conceived and nothing I would ever have read to my child. And I'm sorry that I wasted my time reading it to myself. If I could give it a zero star, I would.
Fell down exaushted from running. She set her chin down on her paws and lay there thinking. Her eyes were dull with sadness. -Skystep
