Early one morning the little train wakes up in his home town, Little Snoreing, and decides to go on an adventure. He chugs and puffs his way through villages, past castles and over bridges. But soon he gets tired, and the big city is a bit scary . . . there’s only one thing to do; he’ll have to head back! The Little Train, Graham Greene’s first children’s book, was originally published in 1946 with Ardizzone's illustrations commissioned 28 years later. First published in 1974, this new edition brings the classic little train back to life for a whole new generation.
