Chug-A-Chug was the result of a little boy named Will who loved trains, but would not go to sleep. Go figure! His father would often make up lyrics to popular children’s songs and sing them to Will to help him fall asleep. Chug-A-Chug was one of these songs. Will liked it so much that his father made it into a book with drawings that Will’s Grandma Carla had made. This “first edition” was bound, brought to pre-school for show and tell and literary history was made! Will and his father had built a large model railroad in their Chicago basement so when it came time to illustrate the real Chug-A-Chug book, it provided the perfect setting and, thanks to the amazing photography of Ray Nilsen, the book came to life. Will, and his father, Scott, hope you and your family enjoy reading the book as much as they did making it.
