Folding out car by car, this accordion-style book takes readers on a tour of Santa’s Christmas train. Each car has lots to see—elves making toys, penguins playing, reindeer preparing for the big day—as Santa searches for his missing boot. With a running landscape dotted with objects for children to find and count on the back of the book, All Aboard! The Christmas Train is a fun, interactive ride from beginning to end.
"Kolb’s spirited cartoon art offers plenty of eye candy (kudos to Kolb for Santa’s brown skin), while the long and narrow, multifaceted format is great fun."Publishers Weekly —
"This delightful, non-narrative excursion unfolds—literally—in a sturdy volume that extends into a yuletide train over 4 feet long . . . With so much to see, seek, and answer, this book has a ton of interactive appeal. The cartoonish illustrations are charming and rich in detail, and it is rendered in a lush, pleasing palette with a refreshingly brown-skinned Santa as its star. Train-loving tots may fancy this Christmas ride all year long."Kirkus Reviews —
