    1. A 1001 CBYMRBYGU.The only copy of this book that I could find was a copy in Japanese. No English except the copyright info. So, this book was a bit of a challenge. I couldn’t even do as I usually do and type the text into Google Translator to be able to read it in English. I had to strictly go by the pictures. Fortunately, the pictures clearly told the story. Wonderful story. And my first read in Japanese.


    2. This is a gorgeous book with a lovely sense of time and place. There is a sense of building up the story as the train driver goes from lorry to boat to bike to pony and so on in order to catch up with his train. Although the repetition is lovely, I think it's the landscape images, almost like mini maps, that make this such a beautiful book. Young children (and older) will enjoy getting lost in the scenery. It's definitely one to continually come back to.

    4. The pop-ups in this story are great (including a removable train that can be pushed up the tracks), but the story is so-so. The flaps are kind of annoying because there aren't many words per page and my four-year-old gets frustrated that I need to look under the flaps to make it through the whole story. He loves it, though, so it was a good purchase for us.


    5. I love this book because I love trains. I love pretending to be the runaway train when I am playing and often incorporate this into my games. I have remembered the series of people Duffy meets along the way and can almost tell the story without mummys help. (2yrs 10mths)


    6. This was such rollicking good fun, and the illustrations really brought to life in minute detail an industrial-urban landscape, the English countryside and the seaside. Ah, England! Made me think fondly of Thomas the Tank Engine and his red friend, James. :)


    7. My son LOVES trains. This was the perfect book for him. This is a great Children's book. The pop pages are great and on the first pop up page you can drive the train on the page. It's great for kids 3 yrs and older.


    8. The story was okay - I think a young child might like it, but for us, where "safety is #1," it didn't strike the right chord for our family. The illustrations were fun to study.
