Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Stanley Tucci

Children Ages 4-6 • 6.5 mins. • Unabridged • © 2012

When a zippy red race car challenges a Sacramento-based blue freight engine to a race, an adventure-packed escapade begins. Over mountains, through the snow, and across bridges, the two speed—all the way to Chicago. Stanley Tucci’s narration is merry and whimsical. His voice is full of bravado. As the freight engine, he delights in call and response with his various train cars, sings in the style of Johnny Cash, and uses onomatopoeia for the sounds of the train. Each of the freight cars has its own humorous voice, and finger-snapping music and engine sounds provide background. Young listeners will enjoy the illustrations and smile at the surprise ending.
