Welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday! This week a book that came out 6 days ago, a book I do want to read as it sounds absolutely magical and fun.
It is a book about a girl who suddenly finds a (postal) train roaring through her living room (I can just imagine how that looks, and what kind of chaos it brings), and then sneaks on board. I just love that premise, while I would be sad to see my living room destroyed (My precious books!), I would be even more curious about the train and where it came from, and what the passengers or cargo are.
It features a villain with an absolutely brilliant name, Crepuscula. Then there are deliveries, friendship, and trolls, and more! Plus, something not mentioned on Goodreads, but I can spy on Amazon that this book also has illustrations. Eep! Can’t wait, I don’t know the illustrator yet, so I am curious to see the illustrations.
A train that travels through impossible places. A boy trapped in a snow globe. And a girl who’s about to go on the adventure of a lifetime.
The Impossible Postal Express is no ordinary train. It’s a troll-operated delivery service that runs everywhere from ocean-bottom shipwrecks, to Trollville, to space.
But when this impossible train comes roaring through Suzy’s living room, her world turns upside down. After sneaking on board, Suzy suddenly finds herself Deputy Post Master aboard the train, and faced with her first delivery―to the evil Lady Crepuscula.
Then, the package itself begs Suzy not to deliver him. A talking snow globe, Frederick has information Crepuscula could use to take over the entire Union of Impossible Places. But when protecting Frederick means putting her friends in danger, Suzy has to make a difficult choice―with the fate of the entire Union at stake.
