February 21, Mt. Laurel, NJ: Dynamite Entertainment and Curiosity Ink Media are proud to present the first picture book in their ongoing collaboration - BALDWIN'S BIG ADVENTURE!
Baldwin is a fearless switcher train with a giant heart, who works hard to move the other trains, cars, and cabooses around the train yard. He makes sure everyone is in the right place and ready for their next journeys, whether it's near or far. Secretly, Baldwin aspires to be just like his father. Big Al, the most famous steam engine in the world.
One day when Big Al doesn't return home from a long-haul journey, Baldwin sets out along the wide-open rails in search of his missing father. Along the way, Baldwin is joined by his best friend Bobber the caboose, and they meet several more colorful characters throughout their travels.
Writer Annie Auerbach and artist Rommel Ruiz invite young readers to hop aboard and join them on this fun-filled ride. Baldwin's Big Adventure is a story of the relationship between a son and father, friendship in the face of the unknown, and learning to grow into who you want to become. It's a tale about chugging around every bend, always chasing the horizon and one's goals, even if it all starts with a little switcher train with a giant heart!
Baldwin's Big Adventure is a 32 page, 9 by 11 inches, hardcover picture book. It is ideal for ages 3-8, but can also be enjoyed by anyone with a love for trains, adorable artwork, inspiring storytelling, and an unforgettable journey!
