9780618040315: Train to Somewhere

Marianne, heading west with fourteen other children on an Orphan Train, is sure her mother will show up at one of the stations along the way. When her mother left Marianne at the orphanage, hadn't she promised she'd come for her after making a new life in the West? Stop after stop goes by, and there's no sign of her mother in the crowds that come to look over the children. No one shows any interest in adopting shy, plain Marianne, either. But that's all right: She has to be free for her mother to claim her. Then the train pulls into its final stop, a town called Somewhere . . .

From Booklist:

Gr. 2^-5. Another heartbreaking picture book by the pair who did The Wall (1990) and Fly Away Home (1991). This time, it's the story of the Orphan Train, told in the voice of one girl. Marianne is in a group of 14 homeless children traveling with a guardian from New York to the Midwest in 1878 in search of families to adopt them. The words and pictures are understated; readers will fill in the spaces for themselves. "I'm not pretty," Marianne tells us. She's the one nobody wants. She's older than the others, not as cute as the little girls, not as muscular as the boys, not manipulative. The train stops at small towns and railway sidings; the orphans try to smile and look their best; it's like an auction. The townspeople look them over ("They feel the boys' muscles through their coats" ). It's clear that some children will find loving homes; some will not. Marianne tries to tell herself that her mother is waiting for her somewhere out West. Himler's paintings in watercolor and gouache set the story against a bleak midwestern fall landscape. Occasional small pictures show the train steaming across the prairie. The group scenes of the children lined up for inspection evoke images of stiff family photos. Then, as the numbers dwindle, the focus is on individual faces staring ahead as their companions are embraced and adopted. The guardian is gentle--in one beautiful picture she combs Marianne's hair to prepare her for the last train stop--and the quiet ending is hopeful. Marianne is taken, finally, by an elderly couple. They really wanted a boy, but they like her, and they're kind. Even older students will find the history compelling and will want to find out more about what happened to those lonely children. Hazel Rochman
