Puffing, chuffing, never yawning Climbing hills as day is dawning. Trains don’t sleep, they CLANG and HOOT Cross bridges and canyons, plow through snow, charge down mountains, and meander across fields filled with sheep. And when it is time to rest and dreams are just ahead, never fear—trains don’t sleep so that you can. With the feel of a classic and vivid artwork that captures the power and majesty of trains, this is a fast-paced rhyming ode to the locomotive.
Deirdre Gill’s debut book Outside (2014) was inspired by her own experiences of playing outside as a child. The outdoors is still a source of wonder and excitement for Deirdre — the place she goes to “see the possibilities” as well as to ski, hike, and bike with her family. She lives in snowy Vermont with her husband, Jason Chin, also a children’s book author and artist, and their son. Visit her at Deirdregill.com.
