Description

When a lorry driver scoffs at the Little Red Train for looking old and useless, Duffy is quite upset. But the Little Red Train soon proves its worth when terrible traffic, breakdowns and faulty lights stop the lorries being able to deliver. And the Little Red Train doesn’t look quite so useless, or little, after all!

Ben Blathwayt’s Little Red Train books, with minimal text and big, busy pages full of intricate detail, have enormous appeal for young children.

Publisher Review

Readers can enjoy the meticulous illustrations of machines at work . . . There are also several different action rhymes to join in with * Nursery World * A triumphant tale chock full of delightful illustrations * The Good Book Guide * This is a lovely gentle story that has a familiar, traditional feel to it. The illustrations are very detailed and wonderfully busy . . . Each time I looked at the book, I found something new in every picture, and this will hold the attention of even young children * Eastern Daily Press * Chuffing brilliant as ever, as the train might say * BBC Parenting * It is great to come across a book that will be enjoyed by the people it is intended for . . . There is so much charming detail to pore over * The School Librarian *
