KIRKUS REVIEW

Another neurotic railroad machine dissatisfied with his lot. This time the little red caboose, tired of trailing a slow freight, wished for speed. But one day he was bitched to a fast banana train, then a faster milk train and fastest of all a streamliner. A rollicking, clattering text with wonderful rail rhymes that joggle along with a train rhythm. Packed with information about signals, cars, and engines, this should delight all children attracted to trains.
