    Chug, chug, chug, puff, puff, puff, ding-dong, ding-dong!

    One original gallery quality art print ready for framing! This print will be one of the FINAL spreads used for the published version of When the Little Engine Couldn't. This 10" x 30" piece will be your keepsake of a book we hope you treasure for years to come. Since the characters are digitally incorporated into our book, they aren’t included in the print you will receive, but they can be added in by special request (by a process called 'chine-collé').

    You will also receive three hardcover When the Little Engine Couldn't books, and an original mini collagraph print.
