Engineer Small has a little train. The engine is black and shiny and with the help of Fireman Shorty and Conductor Little, Engineer Small drives the little train from one end of his run to the other. . . . . . Readers who were friends with Mr. Small when he was an airplane pilot, a sailor and drove his little auto will welcome him in this new capacity. In both her text and illustrations Lois Lenski has the ability to make clear to five-year-olds the fundamental workings of a little train.
