After reading the "original" "retold by Watty Piper" edition, I see that the little red and blue engines were both "she"'s and not "he"'s after all. I apologize for providing inaccurate information in my earlier review. I give the Watty Piper version only 4 stars because Piper's prose is verbose. Whoever rewrote the story for the Cristina Ong version should be commended for having a very good ear for English prose--Watty Piper did not--and should consider issuing a full-length version of the story with more of Cristina Ong's illustrations.

Amazon doesn't do a very good job of describing this book. It is a humongous board book and the toy train is meant to travel within a groove on various pages of the book. Not what I wanted at all! I was very disappointed to find that the illustrations were not the original--they are of a much, much lower quality. I have no idea what I am going to do with this thing!

This is a charming version. The train has a third wheel that fits in a groove-tack on each page, and little eyes are riveted as the story actually chugs along. My 3, 6 (and forty-something) year old boys love this wind-up/book combo.

This is my favorite book! My son likes it too. The windup train stays on the track amazingly well.

HASH(0x8c78400c) von 5 Sternen Great for Children, Fantastic for Adults 24. Januar 2007
Von Alouette1 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
My dad was dying and I bought several books to take to him at the hospital. This was one of them. When I flew down to see him, the word was that he still had hope. Within thirty minutes of my arrival, we found it not to be true. I still read him this book, just as he used to read it to me. It was a joke for us during his last days. Even when he had break through pain and I wasn't allowed to give him more medicine, we'd read this and he'd squeeze my hand while he tried to get through just a little more time. Sometimes he told me the story to keep his mind focussed.

Before he died he told me to finish my degree. I told him it would be hard because I have a big family, so much going on-- and he smiled and said, "Let me tell you about a train that couldn't get over a mountain. It had great things on it, toys for the good boys and girls, milk for their dinners. It was hard to get this train loaded with good things over the mountain but there was one little engine. . ." Three months later I am in college and this little engine goes through my mind a lot. The story is one of my children's favorites and they don't know why I can't read it without crying!

This book appeals to everyone for different reasons, but the results are the same. An iron will allows us to overcome any obstacle!

HASH(0xa061a5c4) von 5 Sternen rebutting the Editorial Reviews for this book 5. Oktober 2005
Von Paul Schliesser - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the first time that the 'Little Engine' has been published as a deluxe picture book. For this reason alone, it is unfair to compare it to the previous editions. The older editions are illustrated with small, simple, colored line drawings rather than lavish, full-page, full-color paintings.

Long's illustrations are beautiful and, in my opinion, suit the story better than the old ones did. As I child, I was never quite sure if the clown and dolls were toys or people. Long's illustration makes them obviously toys.

Long's illustrations give the different locomotives distinct looks and personalities. The original illustrations for both previous editions of the book have locomotives that are virtually identical, except for being different colors. The passenger engine in Long's illustration is a sleek, streamlined design with an arrogant, sneering expression, while the freight engine is a massive, dark iron, whale-like machine that looms over and peers down at the tiny clown.

It's unfortunate that the review from the School Library Journal was chosen by Amazon for the Editorial Reviews, above. I'd like to correct some errors - the writer has her facts wrong about the history of this book.

What Burg believes to be the original edition of the book is, in fact, the 1954 edition with illustrations by George and Doris Hauman. Although Burg praises the '1930s' look of these illustrations with the green poka-dotted clown, they scream '1950s!'. While most people today are familiar with this version, I think the older illustrations are showing their age, and I believe children today will relate better to Long's paintings. Also, as I have stated above, I believe Long's illustrations help tell the story better.

The actual 1930s illustrations were colored line drawings by Lois Lenski, and few people today will have seen them. Interestingly, those illustrations show the story taking place in a stark, snow-covered winter landscape.

Burg claims Loren Long's paintings have a '1950s' look. Anyone familiar with painting styles of the 1930s will recognize the influence of painters like Grant Wood on Long's style. Long's illustrations are much truer to the 1930s than the 1954 illustrations are.

I am a friend of Loren Long's, and I know how hard he worked on these illustrations and how much this book meant to him. These paintings were a labor of love.

This will teach me not to read the reviews carefully before purchase. This is a very abridged version of the classic story: the bright shiny engine and the big strong engine are nowhere to be found. If you're after the book you remember from your childhood, find another version. The illustrations are bright & fun, but there's just too much missing from the story.

HASH(0x8c7918dc) von 5 Sternen One of the Most IMPORTANT Books Your Child Can Read... 4. März 2010
Von WIAPilot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I read this book as a child. As a result, I grew up with the realization that if I tried hard enough and kept at it long enough, almost anything was possible! I also came away from this book realizing that it was good to help others. I believe that it is the SINGULAR most important book that a child 1-5 can have read to them!

Having said that, over the years I have given this story to many children and adults. You DO NOT WANT TO GIVE A PAPERBACK OF THIS STORY!!! Because it is the kind of tale that DESERVES being in a child's life for a long, long time. It is the kind of story that DESERVES to be passed down from generation to generation.

This book is WORTHY of that distinction. And believe it or not, I can recall that even last year I had a difficult time finding a hardback edition of The Little Engine... that was in print.

I can honestly say that this is the NICEST edition of The Little Engine That Could that I have seen. It is surrounded by red foil paper on the edges and on the back! And the pictures are reproduced from the ORIGINAL deluxe editions and are just GORGEOUS.

Does this cost a little more than the paperback? Yes. But it is a book that hopefully your child will even pick up when he is a teenager or a young adult....just to remind himself that yes...he really CAN accomplish a formidable task.

HASH(0x8c791a44) von 5 Sternen Breaks the language barrier 24. Juli 2001
Von Alyssa A. Lappen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Few books are so gratifying to read to children for the first time. A child does not even need to understand English to "get" it. On first meeting our four-year-old son, who had never heard a world of English until then, I put him on my knee and impersonated each engine character chugging through these pages.

He was scared and shy, but he loved the "characters," which I could only differentiate for him by sound, and he especially loved the famous repeating line "I think I can."

As my whispers rose to crescendo, he squealed in delight. Nowadays he reads much harder books before going to sleep at night. But he likes every now and then to come back to this one: He well remembers the first moments of bonding with me, and with this book.
