Hey, Get Off Our Train
By John Burningham

Review by: Lori Plach

     A little boy's mother is surprised that her son is still playing his
train set. She reminds him that he needs to get up early for school in
the morning. The young boy clutches his pajama case dog and falls asleep or does he?
     What ensues is him being a train engineer along with his dog. Its foggy and they are joined by an elephant who is trying to escape from having his tusks cut off. The threesome is joined by a seal who cannot find enough to eat in the sea. A horrendous wind blows a crane aboard the train. They are soon joined by a tiger who is losing his home in the
forest by woodcutters cutting down too many trees. As they travel,
there's much more snow. A polar bear is the last to join the crew aboard
the train. He is being chased by someone who wants to make a warm coat out of his fur.
     The boy decides that he has to head on home because he has school in the morning. All of his new animal friends go along home with him and his dog. His mother enters his room to awaken him for school. She is confused because it seems their house has been taken over by an elephant, a seal, a crane, a tiger and a polar bear. It brings up an interesting question, just how did all these animals come to their house over the night?
     This delightful book brings to life, facts about what has led to many
endangered species in an entertaining and educational manner. The title
becomes a repetitious phrase throughout the book as each different animal is introduced. It is very easy to see why this book has won a Parent's Choice award for illustrations.
     Climb aboard the train and see what sort of passengers climb aboard!
