On an extraordinary journey to the sea, a tiger boards the train, along with a jungle of other animals - all without dad even looking up from his phone! From debut author, Mariesa Dulak, and award-winner Rebecca Cobb, illustrator of The Everywhere Bear.

'You'll never guess what happened
On our trip down to the sea . . .
A Tiger in a top hat
Came and sat right next to me.'

Off to the seaside they go on a rather . . . EXTRAORDINARY train journey. But will Dad ever look up from his phone?

A boy and his dad board the train. Dad is stuck into his phone and misses the fact that a tiger boards the train too. and so does a family of hippos, and a band of crocs, and a mum with her piglets, and a pug in a boa - or two. . .

On the way to the seaside pandemonium ensues, and then the tiger roars. . . Has he finally had enough?
And what will dad say? Will he even notice?
