E really enjoyed this book. The artwork is beautiful and not only follows the words very cleverly, but adds additional meaning to the text. lovely.

Beautiful imagery, great colors. I love the contrast of a modern electric train and an older coal train, as well as the lyricism of the written words. Great bedtime read!
