All aboard for a new, gloriously illustrated Little Red Train adventure.
"Huffitty-chuffitty . . . huffitty-chuffitty . . . huffitty-chuffitty puff" went the smoke from the Little Red Train's funnel."
When a truck driver scoffs at the Little Red Train for looking old and useless, Duffy is quite upset. But the Little Red Train soon proves its worth when terrible traffic, breakdowns and faulty lights stop the trucks from being able to deliver. Now the Little Red Train doesn't look quit so useless, or little, after all. With minimal text and big, busy pages, Ben Blathwayt's books have enormous appeal for young children and are a joy to return to again and again.
