YOU can win a HARDCOVER copy of Kenneth Oppel’s The Boundless!!!

“Will Everett has always wished for an adventure.

Little does he know his started the moment he boarded The Boundless. The longest, most glamorous locomotive in the world, it stretches more than eleven kilometres long and pulls an astounding 987 cars: passenger cars, shooting galleries, gardens, an onboard swimming pool, cinema and much more. But its maiden voyage won’t be a smooth ride for Will. After witnessing a murder during a station stop, he barely makes it back onto the train (with a running leap!), then must work his way from the caboose forward to his father in first class – with the murderer and his cronies on his tail. Luckily, a clever and nimble friend is perfecting her act in The Boundless’s circus car, and there the real thrill ride begins. Sasquatches, bog-dwelling hags and illusions abound in this outsized adventure aboard the Titanic of trains!

    Sounds really interesting! I actually went on Puffy, the oldest running train around, and I’ve been on trains in Japan so one of my favorite topics is trains. Hope I can get this!

    Hi, Mrs. Kuperstoch! I am having an awesome summer! ‘The Boundless’ seems like a great book. It is full of mystery and adventure. It actually seems like it is a real train by reading the back cover. The video is great too. It is a coincidence, because my brother loves to play with trains as well! I am bursting to read this book, and I hope I can read it soon!

  3. I would love to read the book because I love mystery. I also would like to see how the author describes the train and the mystery.
