Imogene Petty, an author and great-grandmother, has completed her first book “Hobo’s Way”: an endearing childhood adventure of a young girl living out the stories of her grandfather’s experiences watching hobos jumping trains, from the safety of their backyard.

On how she would describe the book and its message, author Imogene Petty said, “I would describe “Hobo's Way” as a learning, adventurous book involving a child's play with a mother, grandmother, and retired grandfather. They traveled to many cities and wanted the child to learn her school lessons by experiencing these places also. This book is an example of a family working together to educate a child.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Imogene Petty’s poignant tale is full of vibrant imagery and an engrossing story. This is a family book that will be loved by children and parents alike.

People always have that one place where they can lose themselves in their imagination. For Margie, it was in her backyard. Margie enjoyed watching from her bedroom window hobos hopping aboard trains. As her grandfather used to be a conductor before he retired, he always had hobo stories that Margie enjoyed. When Margie was to experience what it was like to hop aboard trains like hobos did, she surely did have a blast. Imogene Petty’s Hobo’s Way will definitely bring out your inner child.

Readers who wish to experience this irreverent work can purchase “Hobo’s Way” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
