Review:

“The staccato text is as peppy as always and embellished with onomatopoeia like the “chooka chooka chooka” rhythm the train makes once up and running. Jim McMullan makes terrific use of the broad horizontal spreads to show the beauty and challenge of the journey.” (The Horn Book)

“Certain to pique the interest and imagination of young children as to the everyday workings of freight trains—and it takes them on a highly entertaining ride, too.” (School Library Journal)

“It’s a rip-roaring ride.” (Publishers Weekly)

Praise for I’M BIG!: ““It’s unlikely the dino or readers will soon forget such a big adventure.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Praise for I’M BIG!: “Perfect as a read-aloud or a read-alone, this story about a lost youngster finding his courage and his mojo will secure a welcome place in the vast herd of picture books available.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

Praise for I’M BIG!: “Looking big is a strategy used often in the wild, and readers will be happy to see it work for this essentially gentle giant, from whom the fanged, clawed, spiked, yet puny bullies turn tail.” (The Horn Book)
