A middle-grade fantasy and nonstop adventure, The Train to Impossible Places by debut author P. G. Bell is as fun as it is full of heart, and the first book of a trilogy. A train that travels through impossible places. A boy trapped in a snow globe. And a girl whos about to go on the adventure of a lifetime. The Impossible Postal Express is no ordinary train. Its a troll-operated delivery service that runs everywhere from ocean-bottom shipwrecks, to Trollville, to space. But when this impossible train comes roaring through Suzys 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 deliveryto 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 choicewith the fate of the entire Union at stake.

This was a cute, fun read, with a small plot twist that actually got me. Picked this up cause the cover art caught my eye. (Not going to lie, I will totally judge a book by its cover, especially a kids book—I love good illustrations!) #MordecaiReads

This was so damn cute! First of all: love that the main character is a PoC. Theres a lot of confusion with the lack of explanations/being thrown into the middle of a magical world but i think it actually leant itself well. You see it all through the eyes of the main character; being a human in this troll world. The ending SENT ME into chaos. I was NOT expecting any of this. I'll definitely read the sequel

Yeah, I admit it, this pic is just so I could show off my new 'library card' mug from Out Of Print. I loves, loves, loves it! This is my first drink out of it. 😍😍

But also...I just noticed the cute little frog embossing on the cover of my book and I squeeed! 🐸

There is a frog as an important character in the story and seeing that embossed on the cover made me 😊.

I'm a sucker for any kind of story with a train as the setting so obviously a magic postal delivery train that could show up anywhere...shipwrecks on the bottom of the ocean...Trollville...outerspace...well...color me interested. 🤗

I'm starting this middlegrade up today and I'm pretty darn intrigued! 🤞
