About the Author:

Bill Peet was the author of 34 books published by Houghton Mifflin. One of these, BILL PEET: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY, was named a 1989 Caldecott Honor Book. All of Bill Peet’s books published by Houghton Mifflin Company, including his first book for children published in 1959, HUBERT'S HAIR-RAISING ADVENTURE, remain actively in print today.

In both his career as an author and illustrator of children’s books and in his work as sketch artist and continuity illustrator at Walt Disney, Bill Peet created a menagerie of memorable characters. As he himself noted, "I write about animals because I love to draw them. Most of my animal characters have human personalities, and some are much like the people I know."

At Walt Disney, where Bill Peet worked for 27 years, he was a key participant in the production of classic films such as Fantasia, Sleeping Beauty, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, and 101 Dalmatians for which he was not only an artist, but the screenwriter as well.

Bill Peet’s signature style enabled him to create fast-paced stories of fantastical adventure delivered with warmth and laugh-out-loud hilarity. His unfailing humor did not, however, prevent him from addressing such poignant issues as kindness toward others and respect for the environment. Through the exploits of his characters, Peet offered his audience a chance to see themselves and their world through new eyes.

"At some point," Bill Peet once said, "it occurred to me that drawing was something I couldn’t possibly give up, and somehow it must be turned into a profession." He went on to not only fulfill his dream but to introduce generations of young readers to his delightful vision of humor, friendship and compassion.

From AudioFile:

As caboose Katy clicks along the tracks, bringing up the rear of a large and noisy freight train, she gazes longingly at her stationary surroundings. If only she could stay put in a country town or on a hillside and enjoy the fresh air and solitude. If only there could be no more scary tunnels, mountainside ledges, or smoke-filled train yards. Narrator Josefina Bosch keeps a steady beat, mimicking the train's travel and highlighting Bill Peet's signature rhymes. She projects Katy's longings and rejoices in her big surprise. Sound effects of trains provide an authentic background. For Bill Peet aficionados, the production also includes a reading of "The Whingdingdilly"--who is not your ordinary dog!
