    This is the final book in The Train to Impossible Places trilogy. I’m so sad it’s over! This might have been the best one yet! Can’t say a lot w/it being the 3rd book, but it was amazing. We had all the favs back, plus met some new amazing friends. We had some old villains, & met some new ones too. The most adventurous delivery yet, w/the highest stakes.

Both US & UK covers are beautiful, w/amazing illustrations sprinkled throughout as well. I was disappointed the UK didn’t come in hardback too, to go w/the 1st two. But I love looking at these beauties. Swipe to see them all together. The US illustrator is Matt Sharack, & the UK illustrator is Flavia Sorrentino.💜

    The final instalment in the Train to Impossible places. I enjoyed Delivery to the Lost City. In this adventure, Suzy is trying to make her parents warm up to her role as a Postie and to get their permission to work part time at the Postal express. The trolls —Stonker and Flinch — visit with a lovely present (!) to talk things over with Suzy's parents. But suddenly they are thrown into an impossible delivery and called to be Ivory tower on emergency. They includes Suzy's parents too!

In this adventure, Suzy is trying to make her parents warm up to her role as a Postie and to get their permission to work part time at the Postal express. The trolls —Stonker and Flinch — visit with a lovely present (!) to talk things over with Suzy's parents. But suddenly they are thrown into an impossible delivery and called to be Ivory tower on emergency. They includes Suzy's parents too! There is a book that was loaned to the Tower and it has to be returned to a 'lost' city before the due date. This book 'The Book of Power' eats words, so words are disappearing from the world —including books from the library and the delivery forms of the postal express. Suzy's parent's being in the train add to the anxiety element in the book. They are amazed by the new world they are witnessing but also incredibly scared for Lucy. It is cute to see them having differences in opinion among themselves. There are ghosts attached to ships, demons, eyes of storms, frog armies, evil magicians and all the fun. It was nice to note how the book uses the theme of spreadig fake news and suppressing truths. I enjoyed this lesser than the earlier books though, probably because there were less of trolls —those are the funniest guys! So this is less funny than the earlier books. Overall, worth a read and an adventurous postal delivery. I am glad to see a trilogy ending well. Looking forward to see what P. G. Bell has in store next. Much thanks to Usborne for an e-copy.

I was so intrigued by the third book in this series based on the ending of the second. I absolutely loved that her parents went on this adventure with her. We find that we dont get to see much of Suzy's parents in the previous two books so to have them for the whole story seemed magical and I really enjoyed it. What I also enjoyed is that we got two adventures for the price of one. I loved that I got to go on two separate adventures with the characters. They were so much fun. I think my favourite part of these books are just being able to sit down and immerse myself into such a wonderful work with such wonderful characters. I love them all so much and I cant wait for the next instalment.

    This is the third book in the impossible places series and like the first two I loved it.

In this book they have to deliver the book of power back to hydrophea a legendary magical city that has been missing hundreds of thousands of years. The book of power had been lended to the impossible places thousands of years before but now the book is over due and is sucking all the knowledge out of the ivory tower library the central tower in the impossible places. It's worst emergency they have ever faced because if they can't find the lost city in time all it's knowledge will be lost to the book of power. In this book you experience the highest service impossible postal express offers a golf stamp special meaning all other deliveries stop and they can do nothing else really until the delivery is complete. This book is full of laughs and surprises . A truly wonderful and read.

    I received an electronic ARC from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group through NetGalley. This is a delightful series and the latest book doesn't disappoint.

This is a delightful series and the latest book doesn't disappoint. Bell opens the story with Suzy and her parents preparing for dinner with the Train's team. From the first humorous interaction, the misadventures launch and the whole family joins the Posties as they set off on a Gold Stamp Special delivery. The delivery turns out to be a rather interesting book who not only talks but pulls words from everywhere around it. In order to return it to its home, the team has to locate a lost land and help boost a small rebellion. As a plus, they locate Aybek and save the world from the latest of his schemes. No spoilers but the action moves steadily and readers are pulled in as part of the dangers and adventures. Bell's writing style appeals to middle grade readers and will trigger their imagination. They can easily envision these settings from the word pictures and build this world in their minds. Though several loose ends were wrapped up, I hope the adventures continue.

    What a fantastic ending to a brilliant series. I can't believe it all ends here; there are so many more adventures for Suzy and her friends to go on. PG has managed to pull together all the lingering threads, crafting a wonderful story that brings everyone to an ending that suits them. It's full of even more imaginative worlds and strange races, although no one made the one connection I was expecting! I don't want to spoil anyone, so I won't mention it here.

I'm going to repeat myself; I can't believe this is the end. Although no threads are left dangling, there's plenty of space for new stories and new adventures. But maybe PG wants to move on to a new world. I will definitely be waiting to read it, because it's going to be absolutely amazing.

    Well, it was a bittersweet journey in this, the third and final instalment of the Train to Impossible places series. I was really looking forward to this one, having enjoyed the previous 2 and it was really nice to be back in the company of Suzy, Wilmot, Fletch etc. This time, the crew are looking for the lost city of Hydroborea and have limited time to deliver their package. Another fun adventure for the crew. I really enjoyed the addition of the chief and Ina.

    I've really enjoyed this series, it's fun and exciting and I really enjoy the range of characters. Suzy is a fab main character I love her personality and this installment developed her even more. She and Wilmot have the most adorable friendship which I love. I liked how previous characters and storylines came into play and the twist towards the end was great.

    The last in this trilogy of adventure which takes you to a parallel world on board a train which runs on bananas. This is definitely the best yet and takes Suzy on a near impossible postie job. A great read on the lines of Terry Pratchett.

    I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley and Usborne in return for an honest review. This is the third and final installment in the Trains to Impossible Places series. The story begins with Suzy trying to convince her parents that her job as a deputy postal operative is perfectly safe.

Not onl I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley and Usborne in return for an honest review. This is the third and final installment in the Trains to Impossible Places series. The story begins with Suzy trying to convince her parents that her job as a deputy postal operative is perfectly safe. This becomes increasingly difficult when the crew of the Belle de Loin are urgently called upon to return an overdue library book which takes the concept of fines for late returns to a whole new level! Not only is the book alive and dangerous, but the world to which is needs to be return vanished many, many years ago. Suzy and her friends need to achieve the impossible: find a lost city; return the book before it does irreversible damage; and convince Suzy's parents not to ground her for the rest of her life! I always love the writing style in these books. The humour and word play makes me laugh out loud and as with the previous books, I look forward to the moments when children 'get' the joke and then explain to me why it is funny. This book has just as much danger and adventure as the other two and it was made even better by getting to see some familiar faces from previous books return. I particularly liked having Suzy's parents more involved in the story. The tendency in middle grade to conveniently remove the parent so adventures can take place, means we don't often get to see honest and genuine parent/child relationships. It was great to see how much they both cared for Suzy while also seeing their mixture of awe and fear at discovering that the Impossible Places exist. An interesting theme that was touched on in this book was how fake news can be used to create a culture of fear and suspicion. After reading this book, you could have some great discussions about evaluating news sources and the harm prejudice views can cause. I love when the fantasy genre provides a medium to explore these ideas and allows the readers to make links to real-life situations (obviously reading about real-life events is also important). This book was a great conclusion to the trilogy and readers 8+ will enjoy the mystery and the adventure.
