A concept book for the youngest of train lovers.

All aboard! This is one train book you don't want to miss. Using a refreshingly simple approach, Paul Collicutt has crafted the perfect book for young railroad enthusiasts. Each page features a vividly colored and detailed painting of a train, and the spreads show how they are different -- long and short, fast and slow, old and new. As a bonus, full-color endpapers feature captioned renderings of real-life engine models from all over the world that were the inspirations for the trains depicted throughout the book.

Paul Collicutt is the author and illustrator of several picture books, including This Train, A Parents’ Choice Gold Award Winner, This Plane, This Car, This Boat, and This Truck. He lives in Sussex, England.

"Trains in fiesta-bright hues zip through a picture book debut that uses the iron horse to demonstrate simple opposites and contrasts. Young train aficionados will appreciate the impression of speed and power Collicutt achieves." -Publishers Weekly

"This title accomplishes many things: it's a concept book for preschoolers, a beginning reader, and a source of information for primary-grade train fans. This very successful presentation concentrates on the vehicles themselves, excluding the people who run and ride them." -School Library Journal
