Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an absolutely marvellous read for children (although the story is aimed more at boys) aged 2 - 4. Titus is going on his first train ride on his own and the guard promises to keep an eye on him. Along the way, Titus has adventures with bandits, dinosaurs, runaway trains and giant boulders. He rescues everyone with bravery and courage, overcoming every obstacle. When his uncle finally meets him off the train and guard says it was a quiet trip, well, Titus knows better, doesn't he? The story gallops along and the illustrations leap off the pages. Great fun, fast paced and wonderful to read aloud.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Parents in Touch TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 17 April 2011
Format: Paperback
Who would have thought that a train journey could be so very exciting? It's not every day that you meet bandits and dinosaurs, and are in peril from boulders and rapids. But then Titus does have a VERY vivid imagination and he finds his journey is full of excitement - although the guard thought it was very quiet. I think this vividly illustrated adventure is just perfect for little boys and will encourage them to dream up all sorts of adventures when they travel. Perfect to read aloud, the story races along at high speed. I love the child-like drawings at the end, too.

I love most of the stories I read to my son (just turned 4) and enjoy reading them as much as he enjoys listening. But I just can't get on with this one. Perhaps because it's a VERY American setting - bandits, canyons etc.
The premise is that Titus is travelling by himself by train to meet his uncle at the other end of the journey. But in the meantime, while other passengers sit bored, he is battling bandits, dinosaurs, boulders, broken-down trains... to get the train safely to its final destination. Of course it's all in his imagination and his doodles in the margins of the book show him drawing his adventures.
I don't think you should care that I dislike reading it. My son who is train-mad loves the story; I had to buy him his own copy once we'd borrowed it from the library. It just loses a star because I'd rather read one of his many other books instead.

We already knew this was a ex-library book but it is a much treasured book by our younger grandchildren already. Arrived safely and in the timescale advised. No quibbles at all.
