Book Weekend – Roadtrips

yetA humorous picture books about a long road trip turns one boy’s boredom on it’s head.  Literally.

Are We There Yet? is written and drawn by Dan Santat, who won a Caldecott Medal for the Adventures of Beekle: the unimaginary friend.  Each time the boy asked if they are at Grandma’s yet, the art turns the book around and sends the family car back in time.  When they reach the age of the dinosaurs, the boy finally realizes something strange is going on.  Readers will enjoy spotting hidden gags and jokes, including Beekle.  But when the family finally moved forward in time, have they gone too far?  Have they arrived too late for birthday party, by a century?

Sure to be enjoyed by kids of all ages, or anyone who has ver wondered why time moves so differently in the back seat.
