From the Inside Flap:

"This is a terrific, heartwarming story for children and adults. This delightful book recalls the tale of how LIRR employees of 100 years ago adopted Roxey and made him part of our rich history. The humanity and dedication shown to Roxey are traits that continue to shine brightly today among our employees and customers. I know you will enjoy reading about Roxey's exploits on the LIRR and sharing the wonderful Bill Farnsworth illustrations in this book with your family. We hope Roxey's story will inspire excitement about train travel among a whole new generation of LIRR customers." --Helena E. Williams, President MTA Long Island Rail Road
