The Train to Impossible Places is a magical adventure. I liked this book because you never knew what would happen next and it was very imaginative. It felt quite exciting. The characters were friendly and the kind of people you'd like to meet. There were some illustrations every now and again, some of which were quite detailed and I liked looking at them. Whilst the paper cover on front wasn't terribly exciting, if you removed it, the hardback cover was beautiful. I think this book is suitable for 8/9+ year olds as it's quite a big book.

I love the main character in this story because she is daring and even though she doesn't really understand the world she's in, she does her best to save it. Because there are lots of exciting and unexpected twists, it's a challenge to keep track of who's good and who's bad, which I liked. I also loved how at the end it gives you tips for writing letters!

I loved the idea of a train that can travel between the impossible places and it was a very fun read. It was funny and very easy to read, it held my attention the whole way through as I couldn't wait to see what happened next. It is a fantasy adventure and I would highly recommend it!

I enjoyed this book although, at times it got a bit boring. It is about a girl travelling through a fantasy land delivering parcels on an awesome train!

A magical train adventure through strange worlds with a brilliant cast of characters. I was looking forward to this one at lot and it didn’t disappoint. It is a little long winded in places, hence 4 stars, but this does not spoil it. A great read to spark imaginations and to enjoy.
