Big Boy to the Rescue

Item#: 261548




Miss Millie, Clarence, Max, and Mika are trains, but suddenly they're tired and sad, even though they were once happy about their jobs. Why? What happened? And will their problem get solved?

This short, easy-to-read book answers those questions in a kid-friendly tale. It's more than fiction, though: While children are being entertained by the story, they are also being introduced to some important train history, like why the Big Boy locomotive was needed and what it could do. Along the way, they'll also get an idea of what a roundhouse is and what Big Boy's weaker predecessors still could do even after the workhorse locomotive came to the rescue.
