Boy is late for his train. Rushing out of the house, he drops his favourite hat. Luckily, Dog is there to pick it up. But will Dog catch Boy in time? Follow the plucky Dog on this wordless adventure through the streets and rush-hour crowds. Charming and humorous, Dog on a Train is a book to delight dog lovers and tired commuters alike.
"Dog captured my heart as soon as I saw the book...it is unusual to find an artist who is so good at capturing the live form - in this case Dog and Boy - as well as the cityscape, but Prendergast is excellent in both areas...A story told in great detail but without using a single word. Highly recommended." The Bookbag; "This is a very lovely debut picture book from Kate Prendergast. Soft, evocative pencil drawings tell a moving, wordless story of love and loyalty..." Playbythebook.
