Very well written story, you can almost hear every sound. Wish it was available in a board book, but it is a very imaginative bedtime story great for all ages

A perfect bedtime book for young train lovers. In a dreamy nighttime world the steam train fills up with animals and fantastical cargo. Monkeys play in the gondola-car's sandboxes, and polar bears eat ice-cream in the reefer car. it is definitely sleepy time by the time the caboose arrives red, shiny, and full of good friends.

Can't go wrong with trains and the idea/concept of this book is wonderful. Rhyming gives it a lulling quality while being a clever and exciting book for the imagination.

All little boys love trains and this one is whimsical and fun and will perhaps even lull them to sleep if you're lucky!

This book leaves a nice feeling, everything in the book is very positive. Our 3 years old likes it very much as a bedtime story. The only thing I find could be improved: all illustrations are very dark.

I love the illustrations and the rhyming text. Wonderful story about things that go, imagination, and trains. Great bedtime story too!

My five year old who LOVES trains thought this book was so cool. He loves that it has all the animals doing crazy things to load the unusual cargo. The day he brought it home, he sat down to look at it and it kept him occupied for at least 20 minutes as he carefully studied each page. He really likes to count so on one page, he'd count the train cars, on another page he'd count the monkeys, etc. Fabulous book! I rarely give something 5 stars, but this one definitely deserves it!
