Synopsis

This Train by Paul Collicutt

Using a refreshingly simple approach, Paul Collicutt has crafted the perfect book for young railroad enthusiasts. Each page features a vividly coloured and detailed painting of a train, and the spreads show how the trains are different - long and short, fast and slow, old and new. There are two opening and closing spreads that feature captioned renderings of real-life engine models from all over the world that were the inspirations for the trains if depicted throughout the book. Paul Collicutt Is an author, Illustrator, lecturer, and graphic novelist. He lives In Sussex, England. paulcollncutt.com.

Reviews

Trains in fiesta-bright hues zip through a picture book debut that uses the iron horse to demonstrate simple opposites and contrasts. Young train aficionados will appreciate the impression of speed and power Collicutt achieves. -Publishers Weekly

This title accomplishes many things: it's a concept book for preschoolers, a beginning reader, and a source of information for primary-grade train fans. This very successful presentation concentrates on the vehicles themselves, excluding the people who run and ride them. -School Library Journal
