Horn Book Review

These two books show photographs of model trains with various faces stuck on to show different emotions. A typical story describes the friction that occurs when a diesel engine tries to prove himself better than the other engines. Based on the television series, these very British books are poor excuses for literature. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
