Peter’s Railway Activity Book by Christopher Vine
The the latest volume in the enduring ‘Peter’s Railway’ series. And how timely it is too, as this one is filled with games, puzzles, jokes and other diversions that are bound to keep the little ‘uns occupied while the grownups enjoy the seasonal festivities. The dot-to-dot challenge depicting a 1909 rail explosion in Cardiff isn’t exactly a celebration of yuletide cheer, but the rest is a pleasing mix of fun content pitched at railway-minded youngsters and engineers in miniature. Also out this month is ‘Peter’s Railway – The Four Seasons’, which is another volume in the fictional series. Both books are recommended.
