Line 135 by Germano Zullo is a Swiss picture book about a girl's trip via train to see her grandmother.
The train trip is a metaphor for greater things. From her window seat she imagines the train lines offering her an infinite set of possible destinations.
The strong lines and bold colors to the illustrations remind of Along a Long Road by Frank Viva (2011). I don't know, though, if these illustrations are as complex as Vivas (as his book is comprised of a single, massive vector illustration). Regardless, I like them.
I recommend this book to any young child who loves trains.
