Editorial Reviews

Review

Booklist
all illustrated with exacting detail. Ideal fodder for budding engineers
 
Publishers Weekly
The squat, wide format of this book is already well-suited to its subject matter, and it becomes even more so when its trick is revealed: five pages pull out, almost tripling the scene's width and unveiling additional railroad cars. Steele provides an informative chronology of locomotive history from the advent of steam power to the rise of luxury trains like the Orient Express and today's high-speed and mag-lev trains. . . .  this is likely to delight railroad enthusiasts.
 
Tucsoncitizen.com
In this slide-out, see-through, hands-on book, young readers will see the train from the humble beginnings of the steam engine to the challenge of laying transcontinental rails.   Amazing die-cuts, sliders, and see-through panels provide a unique glimpse into some of the world most iconic trains.  Philip Steele is the author of more than sixty books on history, geography, and cultural and social themes for children. (Ages 8 up)
