9780099403029: Runaway Train

A picture book with detailed, bird's-eye-view illustrations and a simple, repetitive, and rhythmic text. When the little red train sets off, Duffy Driver has a hectic day ahead—trying to catch up with the train, with the help of a lorry, a motor boat, a tractor, and a helicopter.

About the Author:

Benedict Blathwayt has written and illustrated many picture books for Random House, including the best-selling Dinosaur Chase and the hugely popular, classic Little Red Train series. He has two sons who are both architects and lives on the edge of Exmoor with his wife, who is also an artist, and two lively dogs.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-One morning, Duffy Driver oversleeps, so the little red train is late leaving the station. When he helps a lady, the brake is off, so the train moves on down the track "...chuff-chuff, chuff-chuff, whoo...oooo." This sets off a chain of events that leaves the man pursuing the train via truck, boat, bicycle, pony, tractor, and helicopter. He finally catches up with it and drives it to a seaside village, where he has a lovely day before he has to drive home again. The text is smoothly written, concise, and suitable for preschoolers. Each page repeats the engine sound that youngsters will love to say over and over again. The satisfying story is greatly enhanced by the detailed illustrations, meticulously drawn and colored. Many pictures are panoramas resembling the English countryside, showing animals, trees, roads, and the runaway train. The plot and illustrations are in the spirit of Watty Piper's The Little Engine That Could (Platt & Munk, 1956). The story-hour crowd will love this one.
