The Lovereading4Kids comment
The Picnic is part of the Little Peter's Railway series, a delightful, fun and informative collection of stories set on a minaiture railway. The series is a real find for both young and old railway enthusiasts with each book telling the story of a young boy, Peter who lives with his family at the edge of his Grandpa’s farm. To get around Grandpa and his grandson build a railway. Whether it's cooking their picnic in the firebox or tinkering with the engine young and old will delight in the story which brings a flavour of the railways of yesterdyear into a contemporary setting.
Little Peter's Railway The Picnic is perfect to share with young children from 3 and above and is just one of a range of paperback stories from the Peter's Railway series. The beautifully produced hardback books that make up the rest of the series are perfect for kids to move on to particularly if the stories of Thomas are firm favourites in your household as not only do the books in the series provide great stories as the author takes the reader on wonderful adventures, they also deliver lots of engineering facts, simply told for parents and grandparents to share with their youngsters. The passion for the railway shines through in every one of the stories.
A note from the author Chris Vine : “Peter’s Railway Hits the Jackpot is one of my favourite stories yet. Children and parents alike can really see how Peter’s character has developed through the four previous books as he embarks on a huge task and completes it to everyone’s satisfaction. The Peter’s Railway books are my way of passing on my passion to a younger generation and if they help ignite an engineering spark in any of my readers then I will have done what I set out to do.”

Little Peter's Railway the Picnic by Christopher G.C. Vine
Peter and his Grandpa have another adventure, this time it's a hilarious story involving steam trains, food and fun!! Grandpa is left in charge of the children, but can he be trusted to feed them? Of course, but not in quite the way Mum intended!! A picnic dinner aboard the little train leads to sausages being cooked in the firebox and then a messy disaster...
With 12 watercolours by John Wardle.

Our three year old loves The Picnic and has to have it read to him at least once a day! As parents we also love the books and I am thoroughly enjoying reading the larger books to our five year old - for the second time round... Sue R.
