Dog Train: A Wild Ride on the Rock-And-Roll Side [With CD]
Hardcover - English

Full of attitude, full of fun, all lit up with star power, and boasting a variety of Top 40 styles--rock and roll, blues, hip-hop, and power pop--"Dog Train" is the third book-and-CD production by Sandra Boynton, following the #1 "New York Times" bestselling, Grammy-nominated "Philadelphia Chickens" and the recently re-released "Rhinoceros Tap." ...

Full of attitude, full of fun, and all lit up with star power, Dog Train is a Recording Industry Association of America Gold Album with 600,000 copies in print. Another great book-and-CD production by Sandra Boynton, it features all original songs recorded by big-name acts and great voices.

Blues Traveler performs a stomping version of the title song, a moody rock journey that Boynton wrote especially for them. And then there's Alison Krauss with "Evermore." And Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme--really--who do the "Boring Song." The Spin Doctors, who channel rock's rebellious side--with a taste of punk--for "Tantrum" "No No No, I don't want to, I don't want to./No no no, I don't want to, no no./Leave me alone. Leave me alone./LEAVE ME ALONE." And the sweetly unexpected pairing of "Weird Al" Yankovic and Kate Winslet (yep, Kate Winslet) as a duet singing "I Need a Nap."

The full-color book features a portion of each song's lyrics set as a little story, illustrated with Boynton's irresistible hippos, cows, dogs, and more dogs. Full lyrics appear in the back.

...Oooooo! From the team that brought you Philadelphia Chickens--It's an all-out rock album for children! and for vintage children!

"The train goes nowhere, but it goes there fast."
