Follow the Track All the Way Back by Timothy Knapman - A book trailer

Follow the Track All the Way Back

Today is a BIG day for little Train … he’s going out on the track, all by himself, for the very first time!

From Ben Mantle and Timothy Knapman, the author of Soon and Time Now to Dream, comes the story of a Little Train who is going out on the track, all by himself, for the very first time! But before he goes, his Mummy and Daddy remind him: “When it’s time to come home, no matter how far you are, just follow the track all the way back, where we’ll be waiting.”

So Little Train heads off into the unknown with a clickety-clack… But, when night falls and the track runs out, will he remember what to do?

Taking its place beside the classic The Little Engine That Could, young readers will share Little Train’s trepidation and excitement in this uplifting and extraordinary read-aloud adventure, and rejoice in the gorgeously atmospheric artwork of illustrator Ben Mantle.
