A lovely little read for bedtime for young children. The storybook starts the same as the other nineteen stories in the series written by Heather Amery. 'This is Apple Tree farm. This is Mrs Boot the Farmer. She has two children, called Poppy and Sam, and a dog called Rusty.'
Rusty's Train Ride is about the children's visit to see the steam train. Mrs Hill's puppy goes missing on the station and Rusty the children's dog jumps on the moving train! Everyone panics. What will happen to Rusty? Where is the puppy? You will need to read the book as it is a lovely ending.
My son loves these stories as they are specially written for young readers which means he can read many of the words so boosting his confidence. As a mummy I love all the books in the series as they are well written and are a complete story. Rusty's Train Ride is a lovely story to snuggle up and read just before bed.
The illustrations by Stephen Cartwright are beautifully presented. The drawings are bright but there is a softness to the page which makes them pleasing to the eye. Look out for the little yellow duck hidden in the pictures there is one per page for little ones to find which is great fun.
When purchasing this book it is worth looking around for deals. I bought the whole set of twenty books for £18 so less than £1 a storybook.
A beautiful book with a well thought out story for little ones.
