Full of attitude, full of fun, and all lit up with star power, "Dog Train" is a Recording Industry Association of America Gold Album with 595,000 copies in print. Another great book-and-CD production by Sandra Boynton, it features all original songs recorded by big-name acts and great voices.

Blues Traveler performs a stomping version of the title song, a moody rock journey that Boynton wrote especially for them. And then there s Alison Krauss with Evermore. And Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme really who do the Boring Song. The Spin Doctors, who channel rock s rebellious side with a taste of punk for Tantrum: "No No No, I don t want to, I don t want to./No no no, I don t want to, no no./Leave me alone. Leave me alone./LEAVE ME ALONE." And the sweetly unexpected pairing of Weird Al Yankovic and Kate Winslet (yep, Kate Winslet) as a duet singing I Need a Nap.

The full-color book features a portion of each song s lyrics set as a little story, illustrated with Boynton s irresistible hippos, cows, dogs, and more dogs. Full lyrics appear in the back."
