All aboard! Join Bullet, a new steam engine, on his first journey across Newfoundland! Along the way he meets a herd of caribou, helps rescue fishermen, experiences the northern lights, and safely travels through the Wreckhouse area to arrive in Port aux Basques! Told in vignettes showcasing some of the more well-known and picturesque areas along the route of the pre-Confederation Newfoundland Railway, Bullet the New Steam Engine is a beautiful children’s book that will be treasured by families for years to come.
"This book will bring back fond memories to many like myself who travelled the railway in our childhood as we share the book with young readers today. I highly recommend it for school and public libraries as well as personal collections." Resource Links
"My absolute favourite children’s gift is a book from Flanker. It’s loaded with Newfoundland references that keep children up to date on the culture, traditions and great folklore. Bullet [the New Steam Engine] is a part of that legacy, bringing back the railroad station for one more story." Tint of Ink
"Those kids who love machines – and you know who they are, if they’re in your life – will be all over this charming tale about a vintage train engine." Northeast Avalon Times
"Illustrations in this book are imaginative and full of character. There is a lot of detail put into each piece." CM Magazine
