Synopsis

How to Train a Train by Jason Carter Eaton

Loco for locomotives? Get your ticket ready - here is everything you need to know about finding, keeping and training your very own pet train. Finding advice on caring for a dog, a cat, a fish, or even a dinosaur is easy. But what if somebody's taste in pets runs to the more mechanical kind? What about those who like cogs and gears more than feathers and fur? People who prefer the call of a train whistle to the squeal of a guinea pig? Or maybe dream of a smudge of soot on their cheek, not slobber? In this spectacularly illustrated picture book, children who love locomotives (and what child doesn't?) will discover where trains live, what they like to eat and the best train tricks around ...everything it takes to lay the tracks for a long and happy friendship. All aboard!

Reviews
