Description

On an extraordinary journey to the sea, a tiger boards the train, along with a jungle of other animals - all without Dad even looking up from his phone! From debut author, Mariesa Dulak, and award-winner Rebecca Cobb, illustrator of The Everywhere Bear.

You'll never guess what happened
On our trip down to the sea . . .
A tiger in a top hat
Came and sat right next to me!

Off to the seaside they go on a rather . . . EXTRAORDINARY train journey. But will Dad ever look up from his phone?

A boy and his dad board the train. Dad is stuck into his phone and misses the fact that a tiger boards the train too . . . and so does a family of hippos, and a band of crocs, and a mum with her piglets, and a pug in a boa - or two . . .

On the way to the seaside pandemonium ensues, and then the tiger roars . . . Has he finally had enough?
And what will Dad say? Will he even notice?

On an extraordinary journey to the sea, a tiger boards the train, along with a jungle of other animals - all without Dad even looking up from his phone! From debut author, Mariesa Dulak, and...

This is a lovely children's book! Very relevant for today.

The pictures are colourful and keep your child's attention and each scene becomes more chaotic!

The boys father is not paying attention as they ride the train and he is engulfed in his phone as the boy looks around and sees large animals that are beyond belief.

A tiger in atop hat! crocodiles with backpacks all around, hippos drinking tea and more!

The bigger message of this story is not for the kids at all it turns out, its for the parents. The tiger eats the dads phone and then at their destination, the dad is fully present and having fun and making memories with his son.

Such a sweet read and one that makes you remember that life is short and they are only little for so long. So let the phone ring through.
