For National Curriculum Early Years, Interest age: from c 3 years, Fiction, Picture storybooks

A reissue of this Hodder classic. A lyrical rhyming tale to touch the heart of any child who just cannot wait until tomorrow comes.

A new edition of this classic rhyming story that perfectly captures that so-excited-I-can't-wait feeling that you get before a journey or a holiday.

All aboard! Tonight everyone's riding the night train - mothers and fathers, teachers and jugglers - they're all sleepyheads, ready for bed, ready to ride the train to Tomorrow. Everyone, that is, except wide-awake William, who is too excited to sleep. William can't resist exploring the train from end to end, discovering its secrets, until his mother convinces him that the train won't go and Tomorrow won't come until he settles down and shuts his eyes . . .

"A truly memorable ride, this ticket to dreamland will be good for many repeated trips." Kirkus Reviews
