Published: September 1992 Annotation: Cars are convenient; planes are fast; buses are cheap; but not one of these conveyances holds a candle to a train--and Donald Crews proves it in this "color concept book of outstanding quality" (Boston Globe). The train moves slowly at first, then it picks up speed, zooming across the page in a majestic blur of color, speed, and sound. Full color.
