3-D master Robert Crowther is right on track with an information-packed, interactive celebration of trains then and now.
Have you ever wondered how a steam engine works? Do you have a hankering to don an engineer's cap and race a locomotive under tunnels and over bridges? Loaded with flaps, pull-tabs, 3-D trains, and a spectacular pop-up model of a bustling railroad station, Robert Crowther's sturdy exploration of trains and how they work is a tour de force of paper engineering and a bonanza for railroad aficionados of all ages. What's more, it's filled to the brim with fun facts and intriguing information lurking behind, around, and even on top of its many marvelous, movable trains.

Robert Crowther discovered the wonders of 3-D illustration while still in art school and has since created numerous acclaimed pop-up books, including COLORS, OPPOSITES, SHAPES, and LET'S COOK! He lives in Norfolk, England.From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4–With pop-up effects that, appropriately enough, tend to be long, narrow, and placed in parallel tracks, this history of railroading opens with outside and inside views of a small steam locomotive and closes with a full-spread, double-tiered train station. In between, the book covers methods of propulsion, the development of passenger cars, speed and other records, tunnels, bridges, and other engineering feats. A mix of boldface titles and brief remarks, the text is printed both between and on or under moving parts–the latter adding another element of discovery for eager flap-lifters and tab-pullers. Crowther simplifies technological details in his neat, brightly colored collage illustrations, so this outing will draw a younger audience of trainiacs than the likes of Fiona Conboy's Ten Terrific Trains (Dutton, 1998).–John Peters, New York Public Library
