A picture book in six chapters by much-loved and acclaimed picture-book creators Anna Fienberg and Stephen Michael King. The irrepressible Figaro and his cat-friend Rumba get caught up in cat-napping adventure when they ride the Very Fast Train.
Figaro and Rumba are best friends. Figaro is a dog who loves to run like the wind. And Rumba is a cat who once sang and danced in Cuba.
When they catch the Very Fast Train that goes all the way to the beach, they meet a cunning crocodile with conga drums and an elegant satin waistcoat. Surely such a musical creature couldn't be a villain?
Anna Fienberg is the author of the Tashi series, and Stephen Michael King has created many wonderful picture books. This is the first storybook they have made together.
