9781416948483: Trains

From steam engines to diesel engines and box cars to sleeper cars, a ride on Lynn Curlee’s Trains is about as close as most kids can hope to get to the Japanese bullet train or the inner workings of steam power. This book’s bold, graphic acrylic paintings are a perfect match for sleek, modern engines; dark, dirty locomotives; and the sprawling landscapes of the countryside. Thoroughly researched and very kid-friendly, Trains tells the history of the railroad, and in doing so, the history of America. This stunning book is one part history, one part art gallery, and a truly terrific ride!

About the Author:

Lynn Curlee received a 2002 Sibert Honor for Brooklyn Bridge. His other works include Ships of the Air, Into the Ice: The Story of Arctic Exploration, Rushmore, Liberty, Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, Capital, Parthenon, Ballpark, Skyscraper, and most recently, Mythological Creatures. He lives in Jamesport, New York. You can learn more about him at curleeart.com.

From Publishers Weekly:

As in previous works (Brooklyn Bridge; Skyscraper), Curlee illuminates a single subject—this time trains—with stunning, clean-lined illustrations and informative narration. He opens with a romantic reminiscence about the mighty engines that rumbled through his North Carolina hometown. We listened to the rhythmic clickety-clack of their steel wheels against the rails and the plaintive echoes of their whistles dying away as the trains sped through the night. Launching into a chronological account of the evolution of the iron horse, subsequent pages highlight major developments in (mostly American) railroad history, from the first steam engines to run on rails to the high-speed trains of Europe and Asia. Flatly styled and employing limited color palettes, several of Curlee's acrylic paintings will impress and awe readers with ground-up perspectives of trains set against broad expanses of sky or mountain ranges and sometimes put into historical context with people in the foreground. The author leaves readers to ponder whether modern trains, more efficient than their predecessors, may offer a highway into the future for a nation built by the railroads. All ages. (May)
