Rusty's Train Ride: 02/21/08
Rusty is a dog. He belongs to Mrs. Boot and her children and they take him along when they go to visit a local historical steam train. Although Rusty is a good dog, he ends up riding the train by himself. That's the gist of Rusty's Train Ride.
Given that there is an old steam train, there should be more about the workings of the train. By leaving the Boot family while Rusty rides off, the train is basically ignored.
As a lost dog story, it's a mediocre tale. There isn't much drama as everyone knows the train only goes so far before returning. As a train book, it's even less satisfactory, as it teaches almost nothing about trains.
