Tootle – Book Review


The village of Lower Transwitch is where all the baby locomotives go to learn to be big locomotives. They try to call out the long, sad ToooOooot of the big locomotives, but can only do a little Tootle.

Tootle by Gertrude Crampton, illustrated by Tibor Gergely

Lower Trainswitch has a fine school for engines. This is where they can learn Whistle Blowing, Stopping for Red Flag Waving, Puffing Loudly When Starting. There are also classes to learn Coming Around Curves Safely and Screeching When Stopping. It is also imperative for them to learn Clacking When Going Over the Rails, and Staying on the Rails No Matter What.

All young locomotives must study these lessons. For those that want to become freight trains they need to learn How to Carry Milk Without Turning it into Butter, Freight Train Whistling and Watching the Caboose.

A delightful book about a little engine who like to break with tradition and go off the rails. See what kind of mischief he can get into and what happens when they discover grass in his front wheels!




Note: All Little Golden Books are from my personal library.

Little Golden Books have been available since 1942. Originally they were produced to make high-quality children’s books affordable to the average American family. They were initially priced at just twenty-five-cents each. These sturdy, colorful books appealed to children and adults alike. They introduced us to new friends such as The Poky Little Puppy , The Tawny Scrawny Lion and The Saggy Baggy Elephant. They celebrated with universal themes such as the need to feel at home in the world while we enjoyed Seven Little Postman and Johnny’s Machines. They helped us understand what might be happening at home The New Baby and Busy Timmy.
If you grew up with Little Golden Books you probably loved them all. Share them today with your children and grandchildren and relive the magic.
