About the Author

SUSAN STEGGALL initially trained as a graphic designer, but then became a primary school teacher and taught young children for several years. After having her own two boys, she began work in a school library where she enjoyed finding out about new authors and illustrators and selecting beautiful new books for the shelves. As her boys grew up, she started making all sorts of pictures for them of the cars, trucks and trains they found so fascinating. After lots of experiments, the idea of using torn coloured and textured paper evolved. Susan lives in the New Forest in Hampshire.

A journey to be savored again and again.” Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Though there are many train stories, the way in which the artwork and text interplay to tell the story makes this one a good pick for young audiences.”
