Giorgio is another of the children's books that I got at the April BookCrossing meeting. It's also the strangest of the books. Giorgio is an Italian train who takes passengers down to a seaside resort. Jealous of the passengers who sail away on boats, Giorgio wants to ride on a boat too. The other trains, of course, tell Giorgio how silly he is to want to ride on a boat when trains ride on tracks. But of course, Giorgio gets his wish one day. He gets to ride a special train equipped ferry boat to take some school children to Sicily.
Giorgio's gingerbread illustrations are really distracting. They're just too happy and too cute. I normally like stories about trains but this book didn't hold my attention.

Giorgio looks like a gingerbread train. I can see the sweetness.
