Detailed watercolor paintings enhance this retelling of the classic poem about a train tour of countryside, cityscape, and everything inbetween.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-An illustrated version of a poem from Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses. Here, a young girl travels from the city to the seaside. The pen-and-ink and watercolor paintings, all double-page spreads, re-create what she sees from the window: people waiting on a platform, a bedraggled man waiting by a railroad crossing. Thomas has obviously taken great care in depicting each detail-filled slice of the journey. However, what is lost in this format, in which each line stands alone on a page, is the sense of the poem itself, with its words that imitate the momentum of a rolling train. From a Railway Carriage remains stopped at a siding.
