Follow the waving, smiling children as they chug through the wood, over the bridge and through the dark tunnel to get to the seaside on a noisy steam train.

 

Bright colours and ample opportunity to contribute sound effects make this an ideal first book for babies and toddlers.

The die cut pages in this sturdy board book represent roofs, treetops and tunnels. Enjoyment is enhanced for all youngsters as they are given the option of 'feeling' the train's journey as well as watching and hearing it. This book may be particularly appealing to those with impaired vision.

About the author

  • Petr Horacek

    I grew up in Prague in the Czech Republic. Just outside our flat there was a wood where I spent lots of time playing with friends. We would climb on piles of soil or build bunkers from forgotten builder's materials. I always wanted to be an illustrator, but I preferred to look at the pictures inside the books rather than to read them. I would listen to the story or watch a film and then fill up my sketchbook with pictures and images from the story. I started to read books quite late, but I haven't stopped since.
