Summary
Caldecott Medalist Dan Santat takes readers 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 reading this astonishingly inventive new book (that even turns upside down for several pages!), 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 book, 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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* 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. What begins in excitement quickly devolves into boredom as minutes stretch into an hour. But then, readers are invited to consider what happens when their brain grows too bored. Let the interactive reading begin! The words begin to spiral around a spread featuring the boy's glazed expression, forcing the book to be rotated and read upside down. Suddenly, the slow-moving time transports the car back in history, placing it alongside a steam locomotive, a pirate ship, a jousting knight, and the newly built Sphinx in Cairo. The whole time, the parents appear startled by the changing scenery, but the boy's complaints (My butt hurts) continue until time stretches all the way back to the dinosaur-filled Jurassic period. Finally, he starts having fun, and time starts to fly; back around the book goes, sending the family to Grandma's at last. The gambit to get kids involved in the story works, and Santat's rich illustrations ranging from double-page spreads to comic-style panels carry it home. The text, on the other hand, reads a bit like greeting-card advice, but the inventive format and engrossing artwork will make kids happy to go along for the ride.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Two parents and their son set out on a marathon car trip, headed to Grandma's house for her birthday. "This is taking forever," the boy groans. Suddenly-is he dreaming?-a steam locomotive appears beside their car, chased by a cowboy on horseback. Following the text around sequential panels, readers end up flipping the book upside down and turning the pages back to front as the family travels into the past. Outside, pirates fight, knights joust, dinosaurs loom. Then, just as suddenly, text and pictures right themselves and the family zooms into the future, arriving at Grandma's house to find a space-age building in its place: "Today is October 24, 2059," a huge screen announces. The conclusion is as neat as the bow on Grandma's birthday gift (a clock). "Be patient," writes Caldecott Medalist Santat (The Adventures of Beekle), dedicating the book to his son. "We have all the time in the world." His own patience is what harnesses the energy of his riotous story and gives it a laser focus. It's a remarkable feat-a turbocharged adventure that's also a meditation on the relative nature of time. Ages 3-6. Agent: Jodi Reamer, Writers House. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
