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.
Snakes on a train? Yes, indeed! These colourful, wriggly passengers are going on a fabuloussss journey. They slither onto the train and the adventure begins, travelling through dark tunnels, racing up and down hills and chugging across a bridge above a river of fish. Until finally night falls; it's time for the train to rest and for the snakes to tuck in their tails for a good night's sleep. From the switcher snake that gets the locomotive on the right track to the "breaksnake" who brings the journey to a necessary halt, this is a funny, unforgettable feast for fans of snakes and trains alike.
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 Train is her (official) picture book debut.

… a very wholesome, bright and cheerful picture book about, well, snakes on a train. Full of sibilant sounds and other wordplay it’s a sure-fire hit for reading aloud.
