Publisher's Summary

Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat takes listeners on the road trip of a lifetime!

"Are we there yet?" Every parent has heard this classic kid question on a long car ride - and after listening to this astonishingly inventive new audiobook, you'll never look at being bored the same way again.

Let's face it: Everyone knows that car rides can be boring. And when things get boring, time slows down. In this audiobook, a boy feels time slowing down so much that it starts going backward - into the time of pirates! Of princesses! Of dinosaurs! The boy was just trying to get to his grandmother's birthday party, but instead he's traveling through ancient Egypt and rubbing shoulders with Ben Franklin. When time flies, who knows where - or when - he'll end up?

Critic Reviews

"The energy of his riotous it a laser focus. It's a remarkable feat - a turbocharged adventure that's also a meditation on the relative nature of time." ( Publishers Weekly)
"Following his Caldecott win for The Adventures of Beekle (2014), Santat offers an imaginative account of a boy's car trip to his grandmother's birthday party.... The inventive format and engrossing artwork will make kids happy to go along for the ride." ( Booklist)
"Employing both comic-book-style panels and full-bleed spreads, the mixed-media illustrations are full of humor, and the changes in point of view keep the telling dynamic and engaging.... A multilayered, modern-day parable reminding readers there's no greater gift than the present." ( Kirkus)

Great story. Visually dependent.

This is a great story, and I love Dan Santat's work. I will say, that his books are so great because he has a true talent for visual storytelling. Unfortunately, that didn't translate into an audio book as well as I had hoped. My two cents: buy the book in, you know, book format. I did and it is a big hit at our house.
