The Train to Impossible Places: A Cursed Delivery
Review by Noah
The Train to Impossible Places is one of my favourite books OF ALL TIME! It is my kind of adventure as it has everything a book needs: adventure, fantasy realms, a witch, a wizard, magic and more. A bit like Harry Potter mixed with the Chronicles of Narnia, it’s a whole new galaxy that doesn’t obey the laws of physics – instead it uses fuzzics which is basically the opposite of physics.
P.G Bell has built worlds within worlds that reminded my dad of The Magic Faraway Tree but written by the Doctor Who team. He must have a very big imagination to think up that many places and characters in one story. Suzy Smith is the newcomer on this dizzying journey whose world is changed forever by the discovery of this impossible train in her front room!
I would love to be Stonker the troll driver of the Impossible Postal Express, so that I could see the many weird and wonderful destinations. As much as I would like to be Stonker I would also like to be Wilmot the Postmaster on the Express, so I could go out into these places as well as seeing them. The Train to Impossible Places is a great story full of imagination and fantasy and I can’t wait for books 2 and 3.
