Topsy and Tim: Go on a Train

Summary

Topsy and Tim find fun and adventure in the real world. Their engaging stories are reassuring for young children having first experiences of their own. In Topsy and Tim: Go on a Train, the twins are going to visit their Granny, and Mummy decides to take them on the train. Topsy and Tim get to see the bustle of the train station, and then they learn about using trolleys, showing tickets, and going through tunnels!

A trusted and well-loved pair who can help guide parents and children through 'first experiences', Topsy and Tim books have been beautifully updated with contemporary artwork. Topsy & Tim remain instantly recognisable to parents while in a fresh style that will appeal to a new generation of fans. These wonderful books deserve a place on every child's bookshelves.
