When a lorry driver scoffs at the Little Red Train for looking old and useless, Duffy is quite upset. But the Little Red Train soon proves its worth when terrible traffic, breakdowns and faulty lights stop the lorries being able to deliver. And the Little Red Train doesn't look quite so useless, or little, after all! Ben Blathwayt's Little Red Train books, with minimal text and big, busy pages full of intricate detail, have enormous appeal for young children.
