Format: Paperback
This is a lovely book with wonderful illustrations. The text builds in momentum as the train races to pick up passengers to get them to the fair on time.There was a real sense of urgency about the style of writing which had my 2.5 year old son twitching with excitement. Now that he knows the story he loves looking at the pictures and pointing out all the things he knows in the richly illustrated pages. A gem of a book...buy buy buy..I can't wait to get the others in the series.I loved the story as well and I'm 34!!

Format: Paperback
An action packed story with fabulous illustrations which my 20 month old son will not allow us to put down. The Little Red Train has to come to the rescue when the fast train to Pebblecombe Fair breaks down, and Duffy driver gets the passengers there via a series of absolutely charming stops. At each station there are hundreds of things to look at, with locations from industrial town to farming country ending up at the seaside at Pebblecombe. The text is excellent too with lovely train noises and a building sense of excitement as Duffy makes the little red train go faster and faster. Textual and illustrative threads go right through the story which never patronises but is eminently suitable for even the youngest child. This is a lovely book to read aloud and also for child to read to themselves. We originally got it from the library but are being forced to purchase as the aforementioned 20 month old would be desolate if he could no longer read it.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book for child and adult alike.Not only do you get really involved in making all the train noises but the child can anticipate what happens next - who Duffy Driver picks up at the next station, what they are carrying etc. The illustrations are excellent and my son and I can take ages on each page talking about what we see. He gets really caught up in the story and his vocabulary has expanded as a result of all that he sees through the book. Reading is so important for young children and with books like this, it becomes a pleasure for them!

Format: Paperback
All the Little Red Train books have served my two daughters well. The pictures, often a post modern industrial landscape are very appealing to 2 year olds. The books then remain favourites through to 5, when the children (proudly!) read them alone. A good book is an old friend: this and the other Little Red Train books remain in use two years later.
An excellent buy - Green Light, Green Light for the Little Red Train (Little Red Train Series), The race with the Swish trains Little Red Train's Race to the Finish and the Great Big Little Red Train Little Red Train: Great Big Train are, perhaps the stars of the series in the eyes of my children.

My children loved these books and now my cousin's little boy in Australia is hooked too. The detail in the illustrations make for hours of conversation and vocabulary improvement.

My grandson aged 2 loved it especially the pictures. I thought it looked a bit old fashioned but that appealed to me as well.

These Little Red Train books are lovely, and my boy adores them. A good story for a preschool book, but its the pictures that set them apart. Beautifully detailed - always something new to spot and talk about with my son, who has to read one each night (and I mean I have to read one EVERY night!). We have the whole set and they are standing the test of time.
