As the little red engine goes on its journey, we meet little Dog Hurry at Jubilee Cottages, Neddy the donkey at Callington Manor, the one-eyed gamekeeper's cat at Seldom Spinney, the sheep at Merrymans Rising and the frogs splashing about at Noman's Puddle. The little engine was always on time.. But one day the Little Red Engine was late, very late because it was ill : medicine was needed, engine medicine, oil to you and me. After oiling it ran better than ever, making up all the lost time and arrived back in its shed not one minute later than usual...
This delightful story by Diana Ross is brought alive by Leslie Wood's beautiful illustrations. Published in 1945, and reprinted many times, it has sadly long been out of print. This new edition in the André Deutsch classic series is true to the original and very well produced. It will make an ideal gift for parents and grandparents seeking to give a book that will be really enjoyed and treasured. It will delight children of all ages,
