About the Author

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. She also works at Magnolia's Bookstore in Seattle, Washington, where she lives.


"[A] delightful panoply of sounds, shapes, and train-riding snakes ... Train-crazy kids will get a kick out of seeing serpents guide the train's journey, from the switcher snake that gets the locomotive on the right track to the "brakesnake" that brings things to a necessary halt. The snakes are adorable as they play cards, read books, and stick their pink tongues out to lick ice-cream cones. At book's end, the train rests with a sssh for the night, the snakes curl up and sleep, and the stars form a lovely S.... Silly, sibilant, and smart."-- Booklist magazine

"A cute, concise, and versatile choice for all toddler and early preschool collections."--School Library Journal

"[A]new variant on the perennially popular combination of trains and picture books; in this title, a simple trek on the tracks gains momentum from the giggle-worthy passengers and crew who enjoy the ride in a way only legless, armless, tubular critters can. Recommended."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
