Synopsis

Terrific Trains by Tony Mitton

From aeroplanes to fire engines, the internationally bestselling Amazing Machines series is the perfect way for preschoolers to learn about all sorts of different machines and things that go! Every book introduces a new vehicle and features a zippy rhyming text, bright, colourful artwork, and the same friendly animal characters each time. There's even a helpful picture glossary at the end to help recap any new words and technical terms. Terrific Trains follows the animal crew as they get to grips with railways. Climb on board and whizz down the track to discover different kinds of trains, the things they do and how rail travel works. Every page is full of the detail that machine-mad toddlers love: diesel, steam and electric engines, points on the track, the signals and so much more! Other titles in the Amazing Machines series include: Tremendous Tractors, Flashing Fire Engines and Amazing Aeroplanes.

About the Author

Tony Mitton

Tony Mitton was born in 1951 in North Africa, the son of a soldier. Until he was 9 he lived mostly in Africa, Germany and Hong Kong. He went to state boarding school in Suffolk and went on to do an English Literature degree at Cambridge University. He then trained to be an English teacher before making the switch to primary school teaching.

Tony worked as a primary school teacher between the ages of 25 to 49, but for the last 13 years of that period he taught part-time. During that period he began to spend 2 or 3 days a week working at his writing, and wrote poems and stories for school reading books and also for trade market books. He now writes full-time and visits lots of schools, libraries and events to talk about his work.

He lives in a small house in the middle of Cambridge with his wife and two children, and a cat called Tiggy, who is definitely one of the family. Tony likes Cambridge but he and his wife often wish they'd settled somewhere where there are better places for walking, like cliffs and hills with good views of the landscape.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
