I was a little confused by this book. I picked it up as the title made me laugh. I am surprised the station master at each station did not
a) seem to care that there were wild animals at each stop
b) question the boy as to why he was by himself.
However, it is just a story. And quite entertaining as you get into it! A great use of onomatopoeia!
Um, just curious... is your grandmother a goanna?
