FREIGHT TRAIN

illustrated by

KIRKUS REVIEW

As trains do, this one simply--splendidly simply--comes and goes. Starting with an empty track, Crews sets down and names the six different ears: each a different primer-bright color, all together a streaking rainbow when pulled along by the moving black engine. Through tunnel and city and darkness and daylight moves the freight train, "Going, going--gone," leaving behind a trail of smoke and a strong, sharp impression. Clean, clear, brillant design, with no drag.
