About the Book

In a country called Industralia, children listen to a New Year’s story about Frostica, the Engineer, and a magical train pulled by Engine No.19.

Endorsements
This is a delightful telling of Industralia's version of Christmas, a celebration which brings the community together. I enjoyed the visit to Steamkettle Bay to spend time with Letitica and her beloved Gerard, and I wish I could live in their cozy and friendly neighborhood. The story made me feel as if I did. This would be a nice story to read aloud, though you may choose to stop before the last chapter to keep a portion of the magic a secret.
There is a sense of history and logic (albeit logic through the lens of airships and clockwork robots) that makes the story easy to believe and invest in. Throughout, it never loses sight of that history or its underlying sense of wonder and fun. Legend’s look at the Brassbright world’s holiday tradition would make it an especially nice holiday read.
About the Author
Lori Alden Holuta

Lori Alden Holuta lives between the cornfields of mid-Michigan, where she grows vegetables, teas and herbs, when she’s not playing games with a cat named Chives. She’s fond of activities from the past, including canning and preserving, crocheting, reading in the dark, and cooking.

Her lifelong fascination with the Victorian era dovetails nicely with articles she has written for The Primgraph, a magazine which focused on historical eras in virtual worlds, as well as music and book reviews for Steampunk Magazine.
