Unwrapping some fantastic illustrations for you to enjoy...

About the book...

"ALL ABOARD!" shouts the conductor and a flock of children obediently climb onto the train that is going to take them on a wonderful zoo adventure that they will never forget.  Each trip accelerates their excitement and becomes more and more absurd.    The kids try to follow the Zoo Map but it doesn't jive with where the train leads them. Oh my what a thrill this is going to be! 

This fun book is written by Carmela Lavigna Coyle, the bestselling author of the "Do Princesses"... series and the very talented illustrator Steve Gray of "There Was a Coyote Who Swallowed A Flea."  

The magical train chugs and weaves through Canyonlands, the Amazon jungle, the African Savanna, Antarctica, and finally... guess where? THE MOON!!!! 

The overzealous wee passengers hold on tightly and can't wait for the next stop.  The repetition and rhyming make this a very fun read and younger kids can saying  "Choo-choo-choo" with the steaming train ,"Ding-ding-ding" with the bell, "Clickety-clack with the wheels spinning round and "TOOOOT-TOOOOT" with the whistle on top.  

The illustrations are whimsical, comical and humorous.  Kids will love to identify and learn about all the varieties of animals that are depicted in each setting.  I love this book and I highly recommend it. 

Storwraps Rating -  5+++ HUGS!!!!!
