All Aboard for Dreamland!

Illustrated by Geraldo Valerio

We bend a little, stretch a little,
 just to be polite,
then choo choo chugga chugga
off to meet the night.


All aboard! Join the fun as boucy text and whisical images transport passengers on a nightly train ride from Wiggletown and Giggletown, through the country of Strrretch, past Groggy Grove and Snuggle Cove to their final destination--Dreamland.

It's a trip that little engineers will be begging to take again and again!
