BOB THE RAILWAY DOG by Corinne Fenton tells the story of the early days of the Australian railroad.
When a railway worker adopts a homeless dog named Bob, they become fast friends. However, Bob is a wanderer and soon finds himself riding the rails and exploring stations across the country. Based on a real dog, this story immerses readers in nineteenth century Australia.
Librarians will find a large audience among children who enjoy both dogs and trains.
