And the Train Goes... Press Reviews

Bee manages to capture the cosy and nostalgic appeal of trains and stations but presents it in a graphic and contemporary way. The pictures are detailed yet accessible and will undoubtedly impact on a young mind. The vocabulary is creative and written in such a way as to encourage interaction * Write Away * Children fond of chuffing like a train will find their pleasure ramped up to a whole new level in And The Train Goes... by William Bee: a charming chronicle of the passengers who board Dibnah the engine... Cheerful and spirited, this is one of those welcome picture books that turns the bedtime story into live entertainment * The Independent * Rush hour at this station is full of lively sounds and motions, as a colourful collection of characters wait for the train. The illustrations have a quirky, nostalgic feel, while repetition and onomatopoeic language grows to a cacophony of sound... A great read-aloud book. * Junior * Beautifully illustrated and a joy to read * Nursery World *
