Nostalgia bit hard, like the winter described in this book. I always had a soft spot for Ivor the Engine when I was young and finding this book really took me back to those days as the snow episode is the one that always sticks in my mind.

Is it a great work of fiction? Well... no. It's a great Children's book though, and there's a beautiful description of the winter landscape that made it worth reading and if you're of a certain age and remember Ivor on TV then this is wonderful to leaf though.
