Jamaica Louise James illustration will appear here.

This story is about a girl named Jamaica, who loved to draw. She felt the train station her grandma worked in was ugly and dull. She was trying to figure out how she can make this train station beautiful. Then one day she surprised her grandma and all the people who took the train in the morning. They loved Jamaica's idea.

I didn't like this story much because I don't like to draw. I did like the illustrations I felt they were very nice and colorful. I liked Jamaica because she can draw so good and she was a really nice girl to make her grandma and all the people happy.

I recommend this book to people that like to draw and to people who like surprises. If you want to find out what Jamaica did to the train station then you should read this book.
