The Mini-Express takes readers on a fun-filled ride aboard a chunky and colorful die-cut steam engine. With the hiss of steam and clackity-clack of wheels on the track, the rhyming verse tells the story of Engineer Hoot and his crew of hardworking mice. Peter Lippman's energetic illustrations bring the characters and text to life on every page, and real working wheels keep The Mini-Express on the go – across the floor, and through a child's imagination. All aboard!
The New-York Historical Society’s Holiday Express exhibition features model trains, scenic elements, and toys from the renowned Jerni Collection that will transform the space into a magical wonderland.
