The Boundless

Kenneth Oppel. S. & S.

Gr 5-8–Will Everett, son of a Canadian railway exec, is booked on The Boundless, a gilded transcontinental supertrain that boasts all the bells and whistles of the steam age. Accidentally separated from his dad, Will winds up on the back of the mile-long train, trying to make his way up front. This breathless adventure features nefarious criminals, kindly circus performers, and ferocious Sasquatch. Rip-roaring good fun.
