What a beautiful story,
This review is from: Locomotive (Caldecott Medal Book) (Hardcover)
I have never written a review before, but I just had to after purchasing this book.
Mr Brian Floca has done a wonderful job with this book. The story is so well written and the illustrations are beautiful, simply beautiful. What a great way to spend a night riding the rails. He makes you feel like you are right there in the story. This is already going to be a new favorite at my house. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Floca at my local independent bookstore, for an author event, and I was in awe of his great work. His presentation on how he developed the book was phenomenal. He researched and experienced the locomotive, and you can tell his heart is in this book by the way the story just flows on the pages.
This is a keepsake book, the kind you read over and over, and then pass on down through your family.
It is not just a book, but a work of art!
