From Sean Taylor, the author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise, and the illustrator of Little Green Donkey, Anuska Allepuz, comes a stunning original bedtime poetry collection to comfort, inspire and reassure little children. From best-selling picture book author, Sean Taylor, comes his first ever poetry collection. The Dream Train is a handsome new collection of original bedtime poetry perfect for sharing whilst tucked up in bed, written for the very young. Filled with 30 warm, joyful and atmospheric poems of every kind - from the funny to the gentle, from the surprising to the lyrical - each capture the experience of falling or being asleep, in a pure, emotional way and celebrates the wonderful, busy, imaginative minds of little children.
