When I first saw this book, it brought a smile to my face. Not only is it written by the author of the wonderful ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ but it is very much a traditional tale, beautifully captured in Andrew Gordon’s illustrations.
This charming railway story will appeal to boys and girls and of course grandparents as little Tom and Maisie step out for a train adventure to Blueberry Hill and really gets you involved in the story with rhyming throughout. The train is ready to go so wave your flag and blow your whistle! A fantastic book to read before bedtime, ready for little ones to dream about railway adventures…
