Summary
Art techniques used: Graphic airbrushed illustration in brightly colored dyes. A description in text and pictures of the various cars included in a freight train, from engine to caboose. Cars are convenient; planes are fast; buses are cheap; but not one of these conveyances holds a candle to a train--and Donald Crews proves it in this "color concept book of outstanding quality." The train moves slowly at first, then it picks up speed, zooming across the page in a majestic blur of color, speed, and sound. Full color.

Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  

Red caboose at the back, orange tank car, green cattle car, purple box car, black tender and a black steam engine . . . freight train.

In simple, powerful words and vibrant illustrations, Donald Crews evokes the rolling wheels of that childhood favorite: a train.

This Calecott Honor Book features bright colors and bold shapes. Even a child not lucky enough to have counted freight cars will feel he or she has watched a freight train passing after reading Freight Train.

Donald Crews used childhood memories of trains seen during his travels to his grandparents' farm in the American South as the inspiration for this timeless favorite.
