Format: Paperback
Whilst the story is simple the illustrations in this book are meticulous and add greatly to its appeal. There are enough points of exclamation to interest a young child ( will the train be caught? ) and the beautiful artwork keeps an active mind busy searching for the action in the story. If this book has a fault it is that there is more to be said about the illustration than the story but it does give the reader and child more opportunity to extrapolate and use their own imaginations.

Format: Paperback
We bought this for our 3 year old son and he loves listening to the CD and reading the book at the same time. The story is recorded twice. First time with lovely sound effecst and second time with beeps signaling when to turn the page which helps initially before they become familiar with the book. Recommended to any child who likes trains.

I've bought this book at least three times already and everybody seems to really like it.

It's the story of a runaway train: the train driver forgets to put the brakes on and the train puffs off and away. The train driver than tries to catch up using various modes of transport: a lorry, a boat, a bicycle, a horse, and finally jumps back onboard from a helicopter. However improbable the story, the children love it. And you can have lots of fun acting it out.

Another book that was a hit with my children was the "Duck in the Truck" by Jez Alborough.

Very disappointed with this kindle edition. The books are fantastic because the pictures are so good but in the kindle edition the pictures are very small and not very clear. Would not recommend this. A complete waste of money.

Simple story that children can memorize and join in with very easily. Illustrations are superb and really add to the book.
Will be read many times

Wish they were around when I was little!

A perfect book book for boys (and girls) about 3 years old. The pictures are full of wonderful details to be gradually discovered and the story is gripping.

The smile on my 20 month old boy's face was absolutely priceless when he flicked through this. Not only is it a story about a train, but also features all the different transport vehicles he is obsessed with! A must buy for any parents with transport loving kids!
