This book was part of a promotion for The Dark Tower (a King book that has a movie coming out.) The author Evans is a character in The Dark Tower. The character died in 1942. That said, the train is a little creepy but the content is not inappropriate for children.

Charlie The Choo-Choo was first written in 1942 - Stephen King wasn't born until 1947, so I would say Mr. King modeled his Charlie the Choo-Choo after this children's book (not as suggested in the comment by soez below). However the smile Charlie has is a little off putting, it is more of a grimmis (sp) and some of the children in the drawings look like they are unhappy/crying/screaming. The story, as I read it, is a children's story.

Just want to let all of you know this is not really a children's book it is based on a Stephen King story i.e. not 100% child friendly.
