It’s another busy day on Stanley’s Train!

“A lovable choice for young railway fans.” —Booklist

All aboard on Stanley’s train! Tickets ready, please.

Stanley and Charlie oil and grease the gears and shovel coal in the firebox before the train heads off on an adventure. The passengers have a beach ball, a toy boat, and an inner tube. Where could Stanley’s train be headed?

Perfect for younger fans of Thomas and Friends, Stanley’s Train highlights all the excitement children can have as train passengers—especially if they get to drive, have refreshments, and blow the whistle!

William Bee’s beloved Stanley series features adorable hardworking hamster Stanley and his community of rodent friends as they work different jobs and help each other along the way. The sturdy padded picture book format is ideal for readers at a transitional age between board books and picture books, and the books are trusted models of basic preschool concepts such as colors and shapes, kindness and teamwork, community helpers, jobs and careers, vehicles, and daily routines.

Reviews

“While the text is brief and straightforward, the story charms with its childlike details… The distinctive illustrations make excellent use of the broad white backgrounds, strong black lines, and flat colors. A lovable choice for young railway fans.” —Booklist
