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.
