Eva and her mum are on a train when it comes to a stop.
Eager for the train to start moving again, Eva begins writing a story to help pass the time.
With help from the other passengers on the train, Eva writes about a boy from a place where it always rains.
This tale is illustrated by two different artists who bring Eva and her story to life. Oxford Reading Tree Story Sparks is an emotionally-engaging fiction series that will fire children's imaginations.
