Flying Scotsman and the Best Birthday Ever

Regular price

This inspiring tale from Michael Morpurgo and Michael Foreman celebrates the world’s most iconic train, Flying Scotsman, and its greatest fan, a young girl named Iris. 

Iris knows everything there is to know about Flying Scotsman. Her dad is the famous train’s driver, and nothing makes her prouder than seeing him at work. But each time the Flying Scotsman pulls away, Iris wishes more than anything that she could be with her dad in the driver’s cab.

Then again, who’s to stop her?

Our cheeky train enthusiast protagonist hops aboard the Flying Scotsman as it travels from London to Edinburgh, breaking the speed record for steam locomotives on its way! But will Iris ever achieve her dream of riding in the driver’s cab of the greatest train in the world, like her dad?

This heartwarming story captures the adventurous spirit of the golden age of steam travel, while paying tribute to the amazing workers who drove the trains and kept the railways running. Readers even get to see that when Iris grows up, she becomes one of the first women to work on the railways during World War II. Joyously illustrated, this book is the ultimate celebration of the great Flying Scotsman and the golden age of train travel.
