This is. Ms. Noriko Kudo’s popular “Wild Cat Squad” series. Since my child into this series recently,  I have numbers of opportunities to enjoy reading this series. Today, let me pick this “Locomotive” Story.    As I reviewed another edition of this series earlier,  I now get to start understanding the general flows of this popular book series storyline.  That is “The curious Wild Cat Squad tries to copy/steal what they saw and thinks interesting, but things usually go south and finally get caught. To make it up for their bad behavior, they are forced to work as its “damage control/make-it-up” purpose. 😊   That being said, let’s see what happens to Wild Cat Squad this time.

  • Locomotive owned by Doggy is running on the rail. Wild Cat Squad are checking on the locomotive from far.
  • “That looks awesome!”  “We would like to hop on and ride that locomotive” 
  • At the station, Doggy the driver of locomotive is taking a rest drinking tea.  Wild Cat Squad sneaked into the driver’s area of locomotive. One Cat says “I know where to fuel”  and he is putting the coal into the burning fuel tank.  “Why don’t we put more” says the Cat.  
  • “Chug-Chug” Locomotive started moving, leaving the doggy the owner behind.   “Meow!  See how easy driving the locomotive is?  Chug Chug Meow!!”  
  • From behind, Doggy running on the hand-operated trolly saying “Stop the train!”  Wild Cat Squad goes “Oh shoot.  No. Hurry. We gotta put more coals!”
  • Wild Cat Squad can finally get away from Dog’s trolley. As they are getting hungry, some Cat finds the bunch of corn loaded in one of the train cars.   “Let’s bake those corns and eat them!  Why don’t we put all the corns into the burning tank?”
  • Pop Pop Pop Pop   “Wait, what’s happening?”      then BOOOOOOOM!  Big explosion occurs and entire area are covered by popcorn and locomotive got stuck.
  • Doggy on the Trolly finally catches up and all the Wild Cat Squad have been captured.    Doggy goes “ Guys! You all think you can hijack the locomotive and run away?”  “No sir” says Wild Cat Squad.   “OK, So let me give you all some work to do to make it up!” 
  • Next day, at the farmers market by the rail, Wild Cat Squad helps to sell the popcorn directly from locomotive cars.
  • “Sir, Work at Farmers Market is done. Can we all go home now?”    “Not so soon. You still got work to do! Come with me and the owner of corns in the car” 
  • They have arrived at the open-air Cinema in the mountains where all the animals enjoy watching movie. There, Wild Cat Squad continue to sell the popcorn to the audience. 

My kids love the scene where all the corns turns into popcorn after explosion. Actually, my smallest kid would not know the popcorn was made from corn. In this sense, they not only enjoy the fun story of Wild Cat Squad, but learn about “how to make popcorn” and “never even put bunch of corns in the oven”.   I just hope that college students read this book as well, since I had experienced at least two times that students over-heated the microwavable-bagged-popcorn in the microwave at College Dorms and fire alarm went off 2AM on Weekday. 😊
