Big Blue Train
By Julia Jarman
Illustrated by Adrian Reynolds
All aboard for a rollicking rumpus - lots of animals, humour and steam train fun!
Toot toot! Hold tight! Ben and Bella are off on an adventure with the Big Blue Train! They set off for the seaside, with various animal friends jumping, leaping and squashing aboard along the way. But will everyone manage to squeeze on? And just why is everyone heading for the seaside?
