Railroad Hank is headed up the mountain in his fine little train to see Granny Bett. She's feeling kind of blue. Along the way, he stops to talk to Missy May, Country Carl, Cinnamon Cobbler, and Reel-'Em-In Sam. Each friend offers up something to cheer Granny Bett, but Hank has bigger ideas. By the time he reaches the mountaintop, his train is bursting with crazy cargo! And Granny Bett has a great idea for what to do with it all.

Editor reviews

Railroad Hank is full of fun for your young train lover! With the help of his friends, Hank comes up with some interesting ways to cheer up Granny Bett. The text has a fun, bouncy flow to it which I think makes it enjoyable to listen to and Hank does some pretty silly things to make the young ones giggle. The illustrations have a neat cartoon painting look to them and there is a lot of color and details on each page.

I think this is a book the whole family can enjoy together.
