A children's book and future classic about friendship, loyalty and hard work, written by the bestselling author Stephen King, writing as 'Beryl Evans'.
Everyone knew the WHOOO-OOOO of Charlie’s whistle, and whenever they heard it echoing across the flat Kansas countryside, they said “There goes Charlie and Engineer Bob, the fastest team between St. Louis and Topeka!” Boys and girls ran into their yards to watch Charlie and Engineer Bob go by.
Engineer Bob has a secret: his train engine, Charlie the Choo-Choo, is alive...
Fans of Stephen King's bestselling series will recognise Charlie, the Choo-Choo, adapted from a section of his novel The Dark Tower III: The Waste Lands. The piece of art created by Ned Dameron for book three is now the cover image for this picture book.
