A magical night train comes "huffing, chuffing" down the tracks, then stops for a very special crew to load all the cargo. Kangaroos fill the hopper car with bouncy balls, elephants spew colorful paints into tankers, polar bears pack the reefer car with frozen treats, and so on. When the work is done, with "a hiss, a jolt, a shift and sway," the Steam Train, Dream Train peacefully chugs and puffs off into the darkness. The only thing more wonderful for little choo-choo lovers than this sweet and playful picture book is the Steam Train, Dream Train Puzzle. The twelve 7"x4½" pieces are delightfully illustrated on both sides with wild happenings aboard the locomotive - turtles in race cars, giraffes reading in bed, a crane (the bird) operating a crane (the machine), etc. - and can be assembled in any order. For ages 3 to 6.
