An adorable picture book full of sibilant sounds and other word play,Snakes on a Train is as fun for parents as it is for kids, and sure to be a read-aloud hit.

The conductor takes the tickets
as the snakes start crawling on.
The tracks are checked,
the whistle blows. It's time to move along.
Hissssssssssss goes the sound of the train.

Kathryn Dennis began her art career drawing on walls and sidewalks and painting anything that did not move. In fourth grade, she published her first project—a comic strip about a platypus, which she sold for a nickel.Snakes on a Trainis her (official) picture book debut. She also works at Magnolia's Bookstore in Seattle, Washington, where she lives.

"[A] delightful panoply of sounds, shapes, and train-riding snakes ... Train-crazy kids will get a kick out of seeing serpents guide the train’s journey, from the switcher snake that gets the locomotive on the right track to the “brakesnake” that brings things to a necessary halt. The snakes are adorable as they play cards, read books, and stick their pink tongues out to lick ice-cream cones. At book’s end, the train rests with a sssh for the night, the snakes curl up and sleep, and the stars form a lovely S....Silly, sibilant, and smart."--Booklist magazine

"A cute, concise, and versatile choice for all toddler and early preschool collections."--School Library Journal

"[A]new variant on the perennially popular combination of trains and picture books; in this title, a simple trek on the tracks gains momentum from the giggle-worthy passengers and crew who enjoy the ride in a way only legless, armless, tubular critters can.Recommended."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
