‘Little Loco’s Big Day’ is the uplifting tale of the first locomotive, now known as Locomotion No.1, which ran on the Stockton & Darlington Railway. Steam powered with a mighty hoot, the nervous Little Loco has to pull wonky waggons along the railway on the opening day in 1825. Trouble brews when the wonky waggons grumble because they want to be pulled by horses, not locomotives. Herald the Horse is worried that he will be replaced by Little Loco and put in a horrible home for hopeless horses.
The book also has activities and at the end the fun facts tell the real story. There is a web site associated with it, where other activities can be found and even a song sung by a horse. The pictures are hilarious with lots of things to point at – look out for piles of steaming poo and a singing cat!
