Red guard's van at the back. Orange petrol tanker next. Yellow grain hopper... A perfect book for introducing very young children to different colours and the concept of colour merging. The freight train moves along through tunnels, past cities, over bridges, in darkness and in daylight with its assorted multi-coloured cargo. As the train goes faster and faster the colours of the different trucks merge, until finally the whole train disappears. Widely considered a modern classic, Freight Train by Donald Crews was first published in 1978 and has sold over a million copies worldwide. REVIEWS: "Bold and modern illustrations reflect a simple poetic narrative that will captivate little train lovers. Each rail wagon is a bright colour (green cattle truck, purple fruit van), which start to blur as the engine speeds through tunnels and into the night. Very stylish." -Junior Magazine "In this brilliantly simple picture book graphics have been inventively used to bring the toddler the excitement of seeing a freight train rush past...A barrier breaker, this." -Children's Books of the Year, 1979 Colour illustrations
