In a companion to 2013s Alphabet Trucks, Vamos and ORourke introduce 26 trains as they proceed from A to Z. They make room for general categories like bullet trains and coal trains, as well as location-specific conveyanceslike the Xplorer of New South Wales, Australia, and the Q train of New York Citys subway system, taking care of a couple tricky letters in the process. Vamoss rhymes are as sturdy as the trains she discusses (I is for incline train,/ a steep, uphill track./ J is for Jupiter,/ with a wide balloon stack), while ORourke sneaks numerous upper- and lower-case letters into his cheerful digital illustrations, which all but beg to be pointed out by kids as the pages turn. Ages 37. Authors agent: Jennifer Rofé, Andrea Brown Literary Agency. Illustrators agent: Emily Mitchell, Wernick & Pratt Agency. (Aug.)
