And the Train Goes........

And the Train Goes
By William Bee
Candlewick Press, 2007. Unpaged. Picture book.

If you like the Caldecott treasure Drummer Hoff, this book is for you!.
Quirky 60's illustrations of a whimsical train going clickerty-click, clickerty-clack down the
tracks will fascinate readers ages 2-6. All of the fun, phonological words of each train car
will be repeated at the end by a lovely green parrot, who remembers each train car and each sound made. The fact that author/illustrator William Bee lives in the English countryside is the reason why this picture book has such a nice British flavor.
