Bob the Railway Dog by Corinne Fenton Illustrated byAndrew McLean reviewed by Jill Smith

bob the railway dog coverBob the railway dog is a delightful story I will happily share with my grand-daughters.

The history of the growing railway in South Australia, interwoven with the dog’s adventurous spirit, means he did not stay with his original friend Guard Ferry. He was spotted at many important events. Bob was everyone’s friend.

Corinne Fenton has presented a detailed history of one dog’s life and the railway that he loved to travel on. The illustrations are wonderful and enhance the charming story with their expressive images.
