Synopsis

The Little Red Train Jigsaw Book by Benedict Blathwayt

This brilliant jigsaw book introduces the Little Red Train to a brand new audience. A simple text and lively, detailed illustrations chart the dramatic journeys of the Little Red Train - from sunrise to sunset, and featuring a fantastic helicopter chase. Each jigsaw has the image faded out underneath so even the youngest Little Red Train fans make the puzzle. A can-you-find spread is featured at the end for more Little Red Train fun! This is a must-have purchase for the youngest train enthusiast.

Peppered with onomatopeia to give an impression of the different vehicles, ending with a list of things to look out for, this is a read that goes a long way Junior This is probably one of the best value books on the shelves for kids right now The Sunday Business Post

About the Author

Benedict Blathwayt

Benedict Blathwayt started as a painter working from his own studio at the age of seventeen, and held a number of successful exhibitions. Since then he has worked in the Hebrides as a dairyman (which accounts for his wonderful character, Bramble the cow and for the Scottish scenery in Little House by the Sea) and in Wales as a wildlife artist for Nature Conservancy. Now living on Exmoor, he has published over thirty children's books, the very successful Bramble books selling over a million copies in Sainsburys in the l990s. He was short-listed for the Smarties Book Award, (middle category) with Tangle and the Firesticks. He builds his picture book stories round farm animal heroes, Kip the sheep dog, Tig and Tag, the sheep, Bella the goose, Pebble the pony. He has also created board books featuring a tractor, a rally car, an aeroplane, a big truck and a ferry. More recently Hutchinson have published Ben`s Big Book of Cars which is proving immensely popular. Ben is planning more in this series.

Married to an artist, Ben Blathwayt lives in Somerset on the edge of Exmoor and has two sons.
