A Ride in the Crummy
||Traveling together on a modern train, Grandpa tells Toby about the special trip he and his family took when he was a boy and rode in the crummy (caboose) of a steam train. The ride is lovingly described and even more beautifully illustrated. The attractive design features full-page watercolors on the right and text and a small painting in which one can trace the progress of the train on the left." School Library Journal 6/91
