As if you weren’t already hyped enough about the upcoming Dark Tower film, Stephen King has written his first children’s book and its rooted in that universe. Charlie the Choo-Choo is like Thomas The Tank Engine, only creepier.
Engineer Bob has a secret: His train engine, Charlie the Choo-Choo, is alive…and also his best friend. From celebrated author Beryl Evans and illustrator Ned Dameron comes a story about friendship, loyalty, and hard work.
Fans will probably recognize King’s pseudonym Beryl Evans and the book Charlie the Choo-Choo from their appearance in the Dark Tower story. Amusingly, Stephen King’s endorsement on the book reads “If I were ever to write a children’s book, it would be exactly like this!”.
We see what you did there, Stephen.
