    Wonderful book! I had to read it for school and I thought I would not like it. It sounded to childish, but I loved it.

    Engaging and our 7-year old laughed at all the silly bit of the children's adventures.

    It really is a good read if you are or aren't into classic books. Characters are easy to love and there are quite fascinating adventures to embark with the beloved railway children. If you want to see a more visual rep there is a movie out. My only complaint, hence the four stars, was the ending. It was a mixture of agreement and infuriation.

    Narrator is on speed and ruins it. What’s the rush.

    Perfect for children and adults. High morals and a culture in their family that all could learn from. A classic.
