"Bubbling with fun and imagination this gentle tale shows what can be missed when staring at a mobile phone."
February 2024 Debut of the Month
A train journey to the seaside turns chaotic when a few unexpected and fabulous extra passengers appear. Whilst dad is engrossed with his phone, his young son is making new friends. First with a tiger, then a band of crocodiles, then three large hippos…where will it end?!
Cobb’s distinctive and charming illustrations bring this sweet story to life. Creating characters that young children will love to meet; they are full of movement and a sense of childlike innocence.
The rhyming text follows a familiar picture book tradition of gentling cautioning parents about being distracted by other elements, particularly technology, and missing precious time with their child. Perfectly mixing the warning with heaps of imagination and fun. And happily, in this cautionary tale our main character enjoys a much happier ending than in similar stories!
An imaginative and gentle story that is bound to lead to plenty of requests for train rides.
