Stephen Biesty's Trains Cased Board Book with Flaps Synopsis

The best-selling, award-winning master of cross sections presents a selection of well-loved trains in this brilliant lift-the-flap book. Look inside one of the first steam trains, a high-speed train of the future and more to find out their inner workings. With over 40 flaps to lift, this book brings to life the remarkable story of trains from all over the world.

Stephen Biesty's Trains Cased Board Book with Flaps Press Reviews

A parade of locomotives, from the sprightly Patentee of 1833 to the next generation of maglev speedsters.Drawn with Biesty's customary superfine linework and meticulous attention to detail, the eight spread-filling behemoths here (all shown pulling just one or two passenger cars except for one diesel engine with a longer line of diverse freight carriers) are viewed from high or low angles to accentuate their massive bulk and dramatic lines. All are kitted out with flaps to afford viewers inside glimpses of boilers and engines, passenger accommodations, and control rooms. There are also numerous descriptive labels and smaller images arranged around the featured train in each spread. Though the small passengers and crew all seem to be white, they do effectively convey senses of scale and period. Like other entries in the Inside Story series, heavy paper stock and rounded corners afford at least a certain amount of durability. A small but choice set of technological marvels for budding trainiacs. * Kirkus *
