Jan would like nothing more than to carry people across the mountains like the big trains do. When the steam train gets the chance to do just that, will it manage? And will it find happiness?
Together with its canine friend Mister Whiskers, the bravest little engine finds itself right in the middle of several magical mysteries. The narrow pass between its hometown of Vawick and the city of Dunnsbridge is haunted by the Nethertrain and its minions, but the bravest little engine isn’t afraid. When the Nethertrain learns of the little engine’s intrusion, it is furious. Can the bravest little engine and Mister Whiskers find a way to stop the Nethertrain once and for all?
Accompanied by two essays on the influences and ideas behind the stories, “Tales of the Little Engine” collects some of the adventures of two very different little steam engines. Join Jan as it learns that, sometimes, dreams come true slightly differently from how we think they should or tag along with the bravest little engine as it travels around Vawick and Dunnsbridge.
As another experiment, I’ve enrolled Tales of the Little Engine into Kindle Select for the first three months to see what happens. Tales of the Little Engine is available for pre-order on Amazon right now and will be released on October 8th, 2014.
I’m really excited to be sharing this collection soon. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the world of these engines and I hope that readers will feel the same!
You can preorder the collection on all Amazon website:
