I really like How To Track a Truck (part of the same series,) so I was honestly a little disappointed with this one. It’s still good, but not nearly as clever or punny as How To Track a Truck and the illustration of a little girl “cornering” a train looks a little bit too much like just standing in front of a train on the tracks for my comfort as a mother.
