Big Blue train CoverA follow-up to the prize-winning, Big Red Bath.  Ben and Bella are off on another rhyming adventure. The train puffs and chugga chuffs and clickety clacks its way round the world.  We visit the Arctic, a jungle, a desert and a farm to get to a seaside birthday party.

"The tale is written using rhyme, rhythm and repetition all of which are recognised as supporting children's developing knowledge of written language. A super book which, once read aloud together, children will enjoy browsing through for themselves."


Adrian Reynold's pictures capture all the excitement.
