Clackety Track: Poems About Trains

Rows of grooves, cables, and bars./Graffiti rockin’ out the cars./A badge of rust. A proud oil stain./There’s nothin’ plain about a train.
Queue up for a whistle-stop tour of trains of all kinds, narrated in lively verse and featuring dynamic retro artwork. Trains of all shapes and sizes are coming down the track — bullet train, sleeper train, underground train, zoo train, and more. All aboard! Skila Brown’s first-class poems, as varied as the trains themselves, reflect the excitement of train travel, while Jamey Christoph’s vintage-style illustrations provide a wealth of authentic detail to pore over.
