Cones on the Rails

Cones is a series of children’s adventure books by Chris Madeley, educating children through the medium of cones. Chris had the idea for the series after spending long hours on the M1 motorway with her husband Keith (AKA “Mr Yorkshire”) as they travelled from their main office in Bradford to their company’s branch office in Hertfordshire.

Supported by Grand Central and illustrated by Zara Hussain, Cones On The Rails highlights the dangers around the rail network and sees the eponymous cones head off on an adventure fraught with potential dangers.

In 2019 the story was animated by students at Leeds Trinity University.
