The Train to Glasgow

Wilma Horsbrugh, Author, Paul Cox, Illustrator Clarion Books $16 (32p) ISBN 978-0-618-38143-2
New illustrations by Paul Cox bring to life a 1954 poem in The Train to Glasgow by Wilma Hornsbrugh, a cumulative rhyme that describes a near-calamitous trip. ""Here is the train. It gave a jolt,/ Which loosened a catch and loosened a bolt."" Young Donald MacBrain (""Who came to the station to catch the train"") helps restore order. Cox's illustrations exude the vintage atmosphere of a grand turn-of-the-century train ride gone a-fowl.
