Basic: Huff and Puff are train engines that want to try something new.

I'm not sure how I feel about this book. The art was really colorful and well done. It wasn't particularly detailed, but there was a quality there that I didn't expect from a free Nook book. The writing was typical of beginning reader books, with lots of repetition and simple words, so it was ok, if nothing particularly fantastic. Honestly, my only issue is with the story itself. There are twqo train engines, one rear and one front, and they each decide they don't like their jobs so they want to switch. They both decide the new job is hard, so they decide that they should each GO BACK TO THEIR PLACE WHERE THEY BELONG. I wouldn't mind if the message were about appreciating other people and their jobs, but something about the "go back to where I belong" bit bugged me on a very fundamental level.
