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 600,000 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.

What a huge waste of time! My benchmark for fun, singable songs is Sharon Lois & Bram, and this is nowhere close. The song concepts are so ridiculous they are pointless. Songs about temper tantrums, being bored, and refusing to eat broccoli are all very negative messages. The worst part is that this is supposed to be rock music but IT IS NOT ROCK AND ROLL! The music is mostly slow tempo folk and is not catchy for either adults or kids. The only decent song is "Pots and Pans"; everything else is great talent attempting to perform mediocre songs. As a Boynton book it is OK for those who like her, but as CD with book it is a huge disappointment.

The CD in the Hudson library copy is in bad shape (50% readable)
