A Year’s End Holiday Tale. Every year in the country called Industralia, a new crop of children are listening spellbound, for the very first time in their young lives, to the holiday story of Frostica, The Engineer, and that magical train pulled by Engine No.19.
A holiday story set in Steamkettle Bay, a large port city on the western coast of Industralia. This story features Letitica and Gerard Liddle, characters introduced in The Flight To Brassbright. Gerard is a talented inventor who has achieved a modest level of success with his practical yet whimsical household inventions. His wife Letitica is a very short, energetic woman who has a habit of mixing up her words, usually with hilarious results. Come along as we join the Liddles, along with their friends and neighbors, in a crowded yet cozy Steamkettle Bay neighborhood called The Narrows. Excitement is building as everyone prepares to welcome in the New Year of 1883.
